Bella’s Bloom

This was my swap card for the last downline meeting we had in November (my upline and several sidelines all go in together and do one!)  The theme was Spring.  I realized that I had never mounted this set, Stampin' Up!'s Bella's Bloom, after I won it at Convention a year ago!  (Yes, not last Convention…the one before!)  It is a cute little set and I wanted to use a small flower.

I took the color combination right out of the catalog!  Regal Rose, So Saffron and Very Vanilla.  I used the YUMMY Bridesmaid Designer Paper stripe along the bottom…it is so shimmery…and added So Saffron grosgrain ribbon to hide the seam at the top.  I also added a Scallop Edge punch border in So Saffron along the bottom.  The base card is Regal Rose.  Surrounding the Regal Rose flower is a border from Matchbox Messages, stamped in So Saffron.  I used the greeting in Chocolate Chip on So Saffron and punched with the Modern Label punch!  I like how it turned out and the softness of the card.

If I can just get through the week, I'm hoping my life gets back to normal pace!  I've had 3 major stamping classes/events this week…tonight is my Last Minute Gift Ideas class.  Tomorrow I'm out of town most of the day and then I need to catch up on everything else I've let slide over the weekend!
