I started by stamping BB: textstyle in antique linen distress ink. Then I diecut blooms and played around with placement. The flowers were sponged with some barn door distress ink (I would have rather a pink tone but don't own any - hmmm... should remedy that ;) Then I stamped the leaves, attached the flower heads and turned them up a bit, and added faux stitching.
My first try with seam binding - I scrunched a little too much I think. A button and Tiny tag to finish.
Am SO very excited for this hop. I can't wait to see everyone's creations!
Supplies; Stamps - BB: Textstyle, Turning a new leaf, Tiny tags, Postmarks (flourish on tag), Paper - kraft, cream, sweet blush, Other - Beautiful blooms #3 die, Tiny tags die, kraft seam binding (thank you Mary!!), sping moss button, distress inks, half pearls.
the text background...
and the ribbon...
all comes together for a gorgeous card!
