Letter Full of Fragrance


Good Monday morning. Hope your weekend was a beautiful one. It was mostly nice and sunny here but seems we have a rain event every day. Looks as if it will be a wet summer.

I made my card a few weeks ago for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers, TLC485. With my card crafting being rather hectic these days, I'm just now getting it blogged. This is another one of the stamps I bought on
my trip to Atlanta. Yes, I've made another CAS card. I've been busy with so many other kinds and you'll see them someday. :-)

I colored with Copics. The flowers were stamped twice and I just cut out a set of the flowers and popped on top of the first stamped ones for dimension. The center of the flower was made with  a Punch Bunch sun punch.

Now, to my giveaway from last week--I'm drawing the winners right now. The winner of the 1st prize listed (bicycle die, thanks die, and embossing folder) is .......................CATHY from CRAFTING CATHY.

The second winner (On The Road die, Ribbon scrap pack and thanks die) is ....................BONNIE at STAMPING WITH KLASS

These are two very faithful readers on my blog and I'll glady send these prizes to them. I wish every one of my friends could have won.

Recipe:
Stamps-Penny Black/Fragrant Letter, Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/You Are Cherished set
Paper-Bazzill black and candy hearts cardstock, PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-Punch Bunch sun punch, Copics, pop dots

What a great card. Love the dark bg - makes the white really stand out. We have been having a little rain event every day here too - the weather is really bad about 20 miles from here. Hugz!

Its such a beautiful card Benzi ..I love the way you have colored those flowers in the envelope what a perfect single layer card :)

Oh my gosh Benzi! I am so excited that my name was drawn! Every time I use the products I will think of you! How sweet!
I love your card! The flowers are awesome and highlighted so beautifully with the black background!
Thanks again Benzi! I am thrilled!

NanaConnie said...

Oh, Benzi, I love the black card base! Wonderful dimension with the second layer of flowers. Darling stamp, my friend -- good choice and I can see why you just had to buy that one. :-D

Donna Ellis said...

ohhhhh! how beautiful this image is, Benzi! LOVE it so much, I'm going to look for the image to add to my collection. BEAUTIFUL! And your color choices look amazing.

Thank you for letting me know that you have trouble with marigolds, too. I've always had the same issues with the mildew on them. Perhaps these larger varieties mean that they can dry out during the day? I'll try catching the seeds. Maybe they are not hybrids, but I suspect they are.

Congratulations to your winners, and to you, my dear friend, for being so generous with your blogging buddies.

love,
