Welcome to our monthly designer blog hop! Gina challenged us to use our favorite background technique but I have to admit I spaced out on this tidbit of important info and I made a card using paper-piecing (the vase) and metallic rub on paste around the perimeter of my new Lacey Circles nestabilities die (technically that’s what I used for the background right?). I really feel silly about this but hope you like my card anyway!
The stamp set I used is Buds & Vases by Melanie. I kept my card base clean & simple because I have my beautifully ornate paper Basic Grey Olivia for the vase and wanted the flowers to be the focal image. I drew inspiration for my card from the paper: bubblegum pink, turquoise sea and moonlit fog. I used the pink stitched ribbon in the romance ribbon assortment and tiny rhinestones on the die.
