Betsy's Blossoms

I've been studying my new In Colors, and also prepping for last weekend's shoebox swap in Syracuse.  It was time to bring out sneak peek set Betsy's Blossoms for some play time.  It is a dilemma to either play with the new DSP or the new In Colors, oh and I don't have ribbon for the In Colors yet.... hmmm.

What does one do without the correct ribbon color?  Make a faux ribbon out of card stock, of course.  We've got some cool stitched ribbon coming in the new catalog, so I made a stitched strip of card stock.  I love this dusty rose kind of color, Primrose Petals, which goes with a bunch of rose-colored buttons I have.  Perfect for a large number of cards at the shoebox swap.

You may notice that little smudgy on my Midnight Muse flower image.  These new firm foam stamp pads are awesome!  They have great coverage on solid stamps, but use a light touch.

Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, Betsy's Blooms wheel, Petite Pairs; Paper: Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White; Ink: Primrose Petals, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit; Accessories: White baker's twine, Button, Circle Scissors Plus, Circle #2 die, Big Shot, Sewing machine, Thread, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card. Love how you have used circles and put the "starburst" behind the circle. Well done. Margaret (Australia)
