Friendship Blooms

Hi Friends,

Can you believe it is nearly the end of October - yikes, this month has flown by.  It's been a busy month for us and I've only managed to make a couple of cards :(  Hopefully I can spend some more time actually crafting next month - fingers crossed!

Thankfully I did manage to squeeze in some time to make a very clean and simple card for Reverse Confetti's October Stock your Stash Challenge.  The theme for this month is thanksgiving and friendship.

Reverse Confetti Stamps - Tall Blooms
Reverse Confetti Stamps - Word Up
Reverse Confetti Creative Cuts - Tall Blooms
MFT Die-namics - Skinny Strips
Reverse Confetti Paper Pad - Fun Times
Tsukineko Memento Ink - Black Tuxedo
Tsukineko Versamark - Watermark Stamp Pad
Stampendous Embossing Powder - White
Nuvo Crystal Drops - English Mustard
Pinkfresh Studio - Jewels

For my card I used two of the floral images from the awesome Tall Blooms stamp set.  I stamped them with Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my copics.  To the centre of the yellow flower I added some dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops in English Mustard.  Both images were cut using their co-ordinating dies. I cut a rectangle of purple designer paper from Reverse Confetti's Fun Times paper pad and foam mounted it onto the centre of a white card base.  I then adhered the stamped images as shown.  The sentiment, which is from Word Up stamp set, was stamped onto black card embossed with white powder.  I cut out the sentiment using skinny strip die from MFT.  The sentiment strip was then foam mounted near the base of my flowers.  I am slightly obsessed with pinkfresh studio jewels at the moment and just had to add a couple to my card to finish it off.

It's a very simple card but I hope you like it.

I am also playing along with the  Time Out Challenge - love the theme for this.
