Flowers Feed The Soul

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom.  ~Terri Guillemets

Rain! Finally we had some rain this morning and it has cooled off. This summer has been unbearably hot and dry so it has forced me to stay in and play in my studio more!

Today I was enjoying the wonderful cool colors outside my window and decided to use some of them in this card.  The soft greens of the bamboo, trees and even the grass appear to have lavished in the rain while the roses sparkle against the green background. 

With this card you can use any colors you prefer but you can see why I used these based on my inspiration. The card base is a dark green cardstock that I heat embossed with Periwinkle Leaves Border from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  The cream colored cardstock is embossed with any Cuttlebug or Sizzix template of your choice and then lightly rub the stamp color of your choice over it to highlight the embossing. Next cut a smaller rectangle and, using RST’s Floral Filigree Wreath Set, stamp a pretty flower border.

Finish off the card using Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur de Lis Rectangles. Cut a small piece of the embossed green cardstock and edged it with a liquid gold fine-tip pen.

The smaller rectangle is from the smallest die in the set and edged in a metallic blue pen. The stamps are from RST’s Floral Filigree Wreath Set.

Embellish with ribbon and sticker flower and it is done
