  • The Petal Burst Embossing Folder adds a rich detail to the background while the crisp white allows the rich hue of Delightful Dijon take center stage
  • The delicate stem from the Grateful Bunch stamp set (don’t you just love the dotted outline?) has been stamped in Tip Top Taupe (another retiring In Color) and is a perfect compliment to Delightful Dijon
  • The cheerful daises, also from Grateful Bunch, have been stamped in DD and punched out with the Blossom Bunch Punch (say THAT three times fast!). It’s so easy to punch all three blossoms out at once!
  • Wink of Stella has been added to the flowers, of course, and three different sizes of Rhinestone Basic Jewels added to the centers
  • Stampin’ Up!’s Linen Thread is a staple in my craft room. It is THE perfect thickness for tying lovely rustic bows!
  • I left the sentiment off so the card could be used for a variety of occasions 🙂

Jen M. with the Freshly Made Sketches design team has provided the inspiration for today’s card…I would like to take a moment to thank Cécile for picking my card last week and making me a PRINCESS!!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I would so appreciate hearing your comments!

    Not being an easy color to work with, you’ve made Delightful Dejon a wonderful accent to your card. Teamed up with white, a bit of embossing, and fun polka dots you’ve created a fresh and eye catching card. Very nic!
