It just so happens that I was about to post this card and realized that it also fit this week's Bloggers' Challenge theme. You see, this was my swap card in the GoDiva swap group last month featuring new catalog items. I've said it before, but I really need to say again that the ladies that are a part of that group are so very talented and truthfully, I'm beyond astonished to be a part of stamping royalty....because that's what those ladies are! Since all participants received their swap cards last week, it's time to let you all in on a bit of what I've been up to.
The flowers shown here are from the new Hostess set, Simply Soft....a true 2-step stamp set. The outline of this flower were stamped in Basic Black, the second stamp fills in the flowers and was stamped in Wisteria Wonder, one of the fabulous new In Colors now available, and there's a dab of Dazzling Diamonds in the center, or on the stamen of each flower to just set it all off. Oh!...and check out that background! Is it not luscious?!!....I'm in love! A brand new Letterpress Plate, called Fancy Fan created this.....I inked it up with White Craft ink and sent it through my Big Shot.
Another new item used is the scallop circle....a new Bigz Die called Perfect Pennants. This new die has a couple cool medallion-type and 2 different sizes of pennants that can be rolled out. For this card, the medallion is the perfect backdrop of the punched circle.
Hope you'll join me in checking out the blogs of all those that join in our Challenge this week. You won't be sorry.....also a talented group!
