BUILD A BLOSSOM SYMPATHY

This card was inspired by Inkspirations Colour Challenge #74 of Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Whisper White and Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #122. My sister-in-law let me borrow her Build a Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals Punch. Both were first introduced in the Occasions Mini Catalog, and fortunately made it to the new 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog! What a wonderful stamp set and coordinating punch ... definitely on my wish list! The flower petals and leaves are stamped in Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I rolled the petals around a thick highlighter marker to make them puff and curve.

RECIPE
Stamps: Build A Blossom, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Versamark, Basic Gray
Embellishments: Antique Brad
Tools: Blossom Petals Punch, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Big Shot
