Botanical Silhouettes

I received my free & exclusive Papertrey Ink Anniversary set and it is a BEAUTY!! (I have an extra set so if you are interested, let me know!  It is $25 and that includes shipping to you with US & Canada addresses...international shipping can be negotiated.)

I whipped up a super quick & easy card using this new set and wanted to share!


This is SOOOO my kind of set!! No coloring! YEA!!  Two step stamping! YEA!!  Worlds and worlds of possibilities! YEA!!  Can you tell I love it!

I kept this card super simple because the main image doesn't need much!


I added some glitter with a Copic Spica Clear Glitter Pen and I love the subtle shimmer that it gave each flower!  Those rhinestones match the color of the flower stems but they look sort of funky in the photo.

I also needed a couple of graduation cards, both for college graduates. I decided to use this same layout and make non-traditional graduation cards.




LOVE that Cane Print Impression Plate!

I'm sending the first card over to the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use bling.

Thanks for visiting! Hope your weekend is a great one!
