Bold Blooms (Again!)


This is my second post today (scroll down for CASology) but I wanted to make the deadline for Ellen Hutson's Pin-sights challenge. This was another challenge that Emily brought to our crafty day last weekend. I stamped the bold black images while I was there, but finished the card earlier today.


Pinterest Challenge 1

I focused on the colour scheme of black, white and sparkly gold and used (again!) Julie Ebersole's Bold Blooms. I just LOVE these stamps and dies! To keep the card clean and graphic, I used a Simon Says Stamp row of dots die to create the inlaid sparkly gold dots down the side. No room on the front for a sentiment, but a scripty Happy Birthday or Thanks inside will fit perfectly!

Gloriously graphic and glitterly golden - love it!

"Glitterly"...I know, not a word but it should be!
