Boho Blossoms

I've had a lovely couple of days again, my Stampin' Up sister came over yesterday, we chatted, giggled, crafted and ate, of course!  It was great to have her attend my class last night too.  It was a particularly giggly class - not sure why, but we all did have some fun!  These two hour evening classes are a bit of a joke really, with ladies starting to arrive from 7 and are here still chatting at almost 11.  There always seems so much to catch up on and with cards to make, the time flies.

After our late night last night, this morning Peg and I had a lazy start and after breakfast we crafted again and both made a card like this:



The background paper is from the Stampin' Up Night and Day collection, the flowers have been stamped in Tempting Turquoise from the One of a Kind stamp set, I snipped into each petal and embossed from behind to give them more depth.  The flower stems were stamped in Certainly Celery and the stamp used was from Playful Petals and the leaves were also stamped in Certainly Celery and is the leaf stamp out of Vintage Vogue (thanks Peg, she knew immediately which stamp set we needed for a good leaf!).  We finished off the card with the sentiment from One of a Kind and pricked the edges of the top white mat using the Stampin' Up Mat Pack.  The butterflies are from a US Stampin Up Embosslits called Beautiful Wings.

Enjoy and have a great day.
