I finally mounted my Stampin' Up Simply Soft hostess set and was inspired by a card I saw by Holly Melanson. The Very Vanilla background paper was embossed using a Cuttlebug Jamara Embossing Folder and sponged with Sahara Sand ink. It was mounted to a piece of Blushing Bride.
The flowers were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown on a piece of Very Vanilla paper cut from a Spellbinders Labels One die. The blossoms were colored in Blushing Bride with the stems in Mellow Moss. A pretty butterfly was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown twice (once on the card and again on Very Vanilla paper). After cutting out the butterfly I colored it with a blender pen in Bravo Burgundy then applied Sugar Plum Shimmerz Paint and Stardust Stickles. The butterfly was popped up and the focal image adhered to a piece of Sahara Sand.
Thinking of You was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown then cut from an oval punch and layered onto an oval scallop in Blushing Bride.
The card was finished with a piece of Kaisercraft cream lace ribbon with a SU Vintage Brad. Everything was mounted to a Sahara Sand card.
