CLASSIC TEA FLOWER

A friend is celebrating her birthday next week, and I think this new Hero Arts stamp is perfect for a feminine card. 



I used Prismacolor pencils to color the flower and added Stickles diamond glitter.  The large scallop oval dies are one of my favorite shapes from Spellbinders.  Border punch from Martha Stewart.  The yellow polka dot paper is from Amuse.  Pearls from Hero Arts. 

I am also entering this in the Hero Arts contest for this month, which is to use flowers. 

If you haven't heard, I'm having a blog giveaway this week.  Deadline for commenting is midnight tomorrow night (EST).  Scroll down to see the post and leave a comment.  Tell a friend.  I've added a few more things to the pot since posting the photo!

Have a great evening!!

A yellow rose - my favorite - you shouldn't have :))))

I don't think I've seen that particular SB shape before - it is lovely!

Ooops, me again.....do you have a local source for Amuse papers? I've been wanting their ginghams for ages, but don't want to pay shipping.....

Loved this when I saw it over on Flickr and it's even better looking here. Love the colouring, the design... just everything
