The label and greeting are from the Rose Wonder Bundle
I was inspired by the Global Design Project challenge set by Brian King to use these three colours.

I'll confess that at first glance I wasn't very inspired by the colour choice! But after a bit of thought I realised that green and pink are perfect for flowers and crumb cake could become a garden wall.  Thanks Brian - it really was a great challenge.

I've really fallen hard for the Botanicals Blooms bundle because they all work perfectly with each other and they're so versatile!  I can see a lot of mixing and matching going on with this set!  The best bit for me, though, is that it's so easy to make a pretty design with them - it almost "builds" itself!

The inside of the card.
I stamped some flowers from the Botanical Blooms set inside the card and the greeting is from a free Sale-A-Bration set called Perfect Pairings (141261 for the clear stamps), which I love for it's bold but elegant sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed this card.
'Til next time

  2. Yes, the Crumb Cake brick wall is great. Did you enhance the appearance with some variations in the appearance of the mortar among the bricks? The flower and greenery have great contrast with the brick wall.

    1. Hi Brent. Thanks for your great question. Yes, I did enhance it just a little bit. I simply swiped my crumb cake ink pad across one side of the embossing folder before I added the paper and ran it through the Big Shot. I inked the side where the lines for the mortar stick out on the embossing folder.
