Karin's Masterpiece!

Karin came over to play the other day & she needed to make a birthday card for her Aunty, so for a little inspiration she went thumbing through my (well loved, time for a new one?) catalogue and found this little gem on page 51:
She loved how they'd turned the stamp sideways to make a little vine of flowers and since I didn't have the Birthday Best stamp set (funny thing is she owns it but she left her stamps at home and just brought her cardstock etc) so we went looking through my stamps for something similar that we could use to recreate the look. Karin also wanted to use some colours from the Soft Subtles colour family so we pulled out the Colour Coach and came up with the magic combination of Lavender Lace, Apricot Appeal & Certainly Celery.
And anyway here is her interpretation:
Don't you just love it? It makes me so proud when I see one of my customers (but friend first lol) use the resources SU! has made available to us all and they make something they love! And it makes me even prouder to see her use a colour like Apricot Appeal with such ease when I have so much trouble using it!
Stamps: Season of Joy (Spring Mini), Time Well Spent, Short & Sweet
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Subtles SW Markers
Cardstock: Apricot Appeal, Lavender Lace, Whisper White, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Corner Rounder & Round Tab punches, White Gel Pen, Elegant Eggplant 1/4" Grosgrain
