Summer Blossoms - VSC DT

This month at Vintage Stamping Brenda chose the theme of Summer Blossoms.
With a fab prize on offer from our sponsor I hope many of my followers will join us - and remember your make doesn't have to be vintage although you do have to stamp!
(I have scheduled this post so if you pop over to Vintage Stamping and the challenge hasn't yet uploaded please check back later!)

I chose this pretty floral spray from Flonzcraft, stamped it onto kraft cardstock and heat embossed with white ultra fine embossing powder.
I coloured it with Distress Inks in shades of Worn Lipstick and Crushed Olive than added a few sparkly gems.
The sentiment was also stamped and heat embossed

The white line round the edge was done with a gel marker and a white shoestring ribbon popped around the card then it was stuck with 3d pads onto a bright white base card.

I just wanted a CAS look to this card which is for my 'pink stash'  - many people have mentioned how expensive postage costs are for heavily embellished multi layer cards so I am trying to do some with minimum embellies as well as the more frilly and fancy ones!

Other Challenges -
Card & Scrap - CAS
Inkspirational - Bloom
Choc, Coffe and Cards - Embossing
Less Is More - More than 1 Stamp

Have a great day whatever you're doing. x
