Today I have a sweet card for you inspired by Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday's sketch challenge # 268 using the Stampin' Up! set Garden in Bloom. I think I've only used it one other time and that was just to use the butterfly. Today I used almost every stamp from that set!
The sketch is a fun one with hexagons on it. I have to admit that I never bought that punch so I was stuck doing a little fussy cutting because these were the flowers I wanted to use. Do you ever get an idea with a stamp in your mind and nothing else will do? That was the case here and I have framelits and punches I could have used if I just would have picked another set! lol Make sure you check out the other fun sketches over at Try Stampin' HERE and play along if you get a chance. We would love to see what you create!
While I was at my craft table working on my card one of my daughter's saw the colors I was using a said she really like them. Do you ever just need a little pick me up like that? I sure do and it was a nice vote of confidence. :) These are the colors I used...
At the last minute I remembered that I had Wink of Stella and wanted to add a bit of shimmer so I added it to the middle of the flowers, the bee's wings and the butterfly's body. It's hard to see, but the first picture shows it the best. Just a little touch of something extra like that can make a card pop! I added the bee and butterfly inside as well just for the fun of it. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
