Vase of Flowers


A short post today--I used the colors for my card by joining the Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge: IBSIC #63 and will also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery.


I think everything is self explanatory if you read the recipe. My vase is paper pieced. I just stuck one stem of blooms in my large vase but I've actually done that a time or two in real life. :-) I guess I could have used the slimmer vase in the set  or added more flowers but this is what I had my mind set on so here it is.

Recipe:
Stamps-Inspired by Stamping/Spring Blossoms and Whimsical Banners sets
Paper-PTI vintage cream, 6 x 6 paper pad by Teresa Collins-Fabrications
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Copics/RV55 (Hollyhock) and RV66 (Raspberry), Martha Stewart woodland punch, EK Success 3/4 circle punch, Fiskars Decorative corner punch, pearls
