More Blooms

Here's another card made using my favourite SAB set "Botanical Blooms". I made a few of these in some different colour schemes for some special December and January birthdays. I'm not sure if you can tell from the pic, but I stamped the Linen background on most of the pieces of this card. I just love the subtle texture it gives. It was Teneale who got me addicted to this stamp!
The colours I've used here are Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. I embossed the greeting (from "In the Stars") with white powder so it would be nice and crisp. The photo corner punch comes in really handy when you need that extra balance to a design. It punches a large and small photo corner in one go.

stamps: Botanical Blooms, In the Stars
ink: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Versamark
cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive
