Simon Says Flower Power

Here's my card for this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge which is "flower power." I made a trio of pansies with a sneak preview of the new SU! in colors and a stamp set called Morning Meadow. After stamping the flowers and letting them dry, I embossed the flowers with versamark ink & dazzling diamonds for a little sparkle, and then embossed the brads the same way. The embossing folders are SU! vine st, and petals a'plenty, and the scalloped border was done with a SU! fancy scallop punch. The colors are strawberry slush, coastal cabana and crisp cantaloupe. I hand-cut the sentiment banner by using a square punch for the ends.

Thanks for spending a little part of your day with me here, it's always nice to have you stop by :)

Oh nice colors. This card has a refreshing feel to it. Now I want some fruit. I never thought to emboss Dazzling Diamonds. I usually just use it with glue as glitter. I really like the effect so I'll be trying this one real soon.

As you can see, I am playing catch up. It's great to see what you've been up to while I was away.
