Graceful Garden

Welcome to Kylie's International Stampin' Up!® Blog Highlights for this month, I would appreciate your vote for my card HERE!!!!!! I am number 2 the top 10 chosen will be taking part in the International Blog Hop next month.

With my card I have chosen to use the beautiful new stamp set "Graceful Garden", I have made 2 using different colours. For my base on both cards I started with Early Espresso, then the next layer of cardstock for both cards was: Pear Pizzazz or Perfect Plum. I then added a mat of Basic Black so the rose would really be showcased on the card. I stamped the rose in Stazon Jet Black Ink and cut it out, I then used my Stampin' Up!® Ink Pads and my Aqua Painter to colour the rose. I finally added a sentiment and some of the lovely new ribbons available in the new annual catalogue. Finished off just with a scatter of rhinestones on the Basic Black.

Vote for Me - I am Number 2!
