Softly Said

Hello! We've been having strange weather here in KS. It was 65* today! What is up with that?! It's the middle of winter and January for crying out loud! So, since it's apparently no longer winter, I've got a soft and springlike card for you all tonight!

Here it is~

And details~



I've used a new stamp set from Pink Paislee's Nantucket collection for the main flower image. Isn't is GORGEOUS?! I also used one of my favorite techniques--double embossing. I used it on the sentiment. I heat embossed the sentiment and then dry embossed the sentiment panel. So much fun! What do you think? I really think it turned out beautifully. :)

I hope my little creation inspires you to create something fabulous today! Pop on over to the challenges I've entered in order to play along--you will have so much fun! :) Happy stamping!!!

I'm entering this little gem into the following challenges~
Stampalot Challenges: Monochromatic
Try it on Tuesday: All Your Own Work
Gingersnap Creations GC132: Soft yellows and white
Simon Says Stamp: Something new (NEW stamp--yeah!!!)

I think the whole weather system is upside down Mynette, here in the UK we've had nothing but rain and high winds for weeks, not a sign of proper winter weather. Then all last summer there was no sign of Summer weather, like you I asked what it was all about.

On to your card, it's really lovely, I love the soft sandy colours and a real feel of elegance.

Thank you so much for joining us Stampalot challenge this month and look forward to seeing more of your lovely work.
