Connie and Mary 408

The colour challenge at Connie and Mary this week seemed perfect for my new favourite stamp set, Wild About Flowers. Not a new set, it's new to me so I'm still experimenting with it and the soft pastels conjured up a summer field of flowers.

I like soft, dreamy result. Although I intended it to be a birthday card, it could be used for lots of things with this sentiment. 

Possibly the consumable item I will miss the most once the new catalogue is live, will be candy dots since I've used a lot of them with butterflies! What will you miss?

Update: Delighted to be a Top Pick at Create with Connie and Mary

Card: Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Stamps: Wild About Flowers, Papillon Potpourri, Endless Birthday Wishes

  9. Just saw this card on Pinterest, and had to leave you a comment on this beautiful card.
    Quite simple.... but really very elegant. I think I am going to have to "borrow" this one. .I love cards that have a tactile design like this one. We are fortunate to be able to see stunning cards like this, but I always think that to be able to send one to a blind person who can see the design by touch, is a real blessing. TFS Kind regards from the UK.

    1. Thank you Joan, for your kind words. Yes, we are indeed fortunate to be able to see cards from people all over the world and share in their creativity. By all means, borrow this one and make it your own.
