Best Blossoms bloom again



I know, I know....it's retired, but I just love this set and I think it deserves to get inked again! So it did get inky, and here's the result. I really love the different flowers in this set..it was so versatile. I hope they'll have something like this again.

All products are Stampin Up. I started out with my card base of Bashful Blue card stock. I stamped the Retired Elegant Lace Background Stamp in Bashful blue ink, altho for some reason in the picture it looks darker. My next layer was Certainly Celery c/s with the leaves stamped in Garden Green ink, kissed with Green Galore.
The last layer is Bravo Burgandy c/s layered with Whisper Whit c/s. I stamped the
flowers in Bravo Burgandy ink and leaves are stamped in Garden Green, kissed with Green Galore. I punched a 3/4" circle and halved it...slipping it onto this layer.
I punched a 1/8" hole in it and ran Bravo Burgandy Sheer ribbon thru it. I'm happy with the results. I really hope you like it, too!

I want to thank you for stopping in on my Blog, I really appreciate your comments and emails that I recieve, they really make my day, so thank you very much!!!
I hope I've inspired you to pull out an old set and ink it up, you'll never know
where your mojo will lead you!! hehe

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!! I hope you get a chance to get all inky!!
It's sooooooo much fun! My fingers are usually every color of the rainbow. hehe

Stamping hugs,
