a card for Loly. . . .

for the April card chain challenge hosted by Deborah Nolan:




I have several new Spellbinders dies and wanted to use this set on Loly's card.  The stamps are from Hero Arts and the ink is also Hero Arts cornflower blue.  Love that color and it perfectly matches some cardstock that I purchased locally.  I stamped the flower on the card and then stamped it again on white cardstock and cut out each petal to pop them up from the base.  A sheer ribbon and some flat sparkle gems were added.

Hope your weekend is a good one!

What a pretty way to frame that flower!! Was it difficult to cut these intricate dies??? The cornflower blue is a refreshing change from all the aqua blues out there:)
