FMS #335 + CTD #491 + Seize the Birthday Anything Goes

Are you lucky enough to live near crafting friends? Earlier this week my CASology teammate, Joyce, invited me over to play. Getting together with a card making friend means stamping and die cutting with products I don't have in my stash, and at the top of my list to stamp off was an older PTI stamp set, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, because of the beautiful tulip bouquet.

Even after stamping and die cutting a few bouquets I still wasn't done with these tulips and Joyce was generous enough to let me take the set home to play with heat embossing and watercoloring.

For this bouquet I used the Color Throwdown #491 colors and then realized the Freshly Made Sketches #225 would provide the perfect design to use it on a card.


Zig Real Brush markers are used to color the image before the stems were wrapped with twine to bring in the Kraft color. An Avery Elle sentiment is stamped on the PTI Tiny Tag and the completed die cut is popped up on the scalloped oval panel.

I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday where Anything Goes for the current challenge.
