Feel Better Soon

Life sure has gotten hectic for me lately, and it's all good, but it's a lot.  When I can, I squeeze in crafty time in my new play space and lose myself for a little while.  I want to share a recent creation with you:


I just love beautiful floral stickers, the 3-dimensional kind (like K & Co.'s).  This bouquet and the little bee came from the same pack, and really help "make" the card.  The embossed background is made with a Spellbinders Impressabilities plate, then lightly washed with white craft ink to help bring out the contrast of raised areas.


This is short and sweet, so I can go check some more things off my To-Do list now.  Thanks so much for coming by!



Stamps: Heartfelt Phrases - Verve
Paper: Going Gray, Mellow Moss - SU; pale gray speckled
Ink: Pumice Stone - Ranger; Whisper White - SU; Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: white seam binding - Hug Snug; green lace - Webster's Pages
Other: stickers - K & Co.; corner rounder punch - EK Success; Amira Flourish die - Memory Box; pearls; Flourish Impressabilities embossing plate - Spellbinders
