Flower Fusion Fun

I haven't been in my crafty space too much over the last week -  - 
I ended up with a rotator cuff injury which has really sidelined me!! 
Hopefully physiotherapy, ice packs and lots of quiet time will help it heal quickly!! 

I finally spent some time organizing and stamping a little bit today.  When I saw 
Betsy Veldman's card using Papertrey Ink's Flower Fusion #1 stamp set and die,
I knew I wanted to try something similar.  Betsy used some red, blue and green,
but I decided to try a soft pastel colour scheme for my niece's birthday this month. 
Here's my version:

Card Front:

Papertrey Ink Products 
Dot Spot  - flower centers
Take Three: Summer - sentiment
Flower Fusion #1 stamp and die 
Friendship Jar Label stamp and die
Love Lives Here - heart
Canvas Impression Plate
Stamper' Select White card stock 

Inks:  Close to My Heart: 
Blush, Sweet Leaf, Lilac Mist

Other Supplies:  
The Twinery Baker's Twine
Kaisercraft pearl 
EK Success Dotted Scallop Border Punch


Papertrey Ink Products  
Big Birthday Wishes - sentiment 
Flower Fusion #1 stamp and die;
Love Lives Here - heart

Inks:  Close to My Heart: 
Blush, Sweet Leaf, Lilac Mist

Thanks for visiting. Have a great week!
