Floral Fusion

I LOVE PTI's CHA "Floral Fusion" stamp set!  :)  This set has so many beautiful possibilities!  I just had a short time to play with it today and this is the card that I made.


This is based on a sketch for Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #2 by Meg that you can see below.


I finally tried the glitter strip!  I love it!  It is so fun and wow! the sparkle it adds in real life is so eye catching!  It was so simple to do too.  I tend to shy away from glitter since it's so messy but the end result might be worth a little hassle! :)


I hope you enjoy my take on the sketch!  I know that I had a lot of fun with it!  If you would like to join us in this challenge, we'd love to have you play along.  The sketch is pictured below.  You can post a link to your card at the end of this post.

Stamps: Floral Fusion, Butterfly Dreams
Paper: TAC Ivory & Kraft, Sweet Blush
Ink: Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Tea Dye Duo, Giverny Green Palette, Burnt Umber Palette

So pretty, I am envious of those who have this gorgeous set. No chance to go to CHA for me though. Oh well, maybe via proxy shopper... at any rate this is such a beautiful card.
