There's Only One Like You

 Good Sunday morning all!  Today’s card is an explosion of flowers!  I usually only like to add a few floral touches but every once in awhile, I just love the look of flowers cascading across a card! LOL. I started with a piece of dark card and used the Bordeaux Glitter Kiss all over it.  I allowed it dry well then embossed it with the Sublime Swirls embossing folder.  Next, I stamped out a bunch of varying sizes of the Jasmine stamps and then cut them with the matching Jasmine dies. I used Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide ink on the petal tips, then assembled all the flowers.  I cut a Decorative Flag die in white and added the sentiment, There’s only one like you, cut in black.  I attached it to the background with foam and began to attach all the flowers around it and across the card.  I used Magnolia Corner cut in white and nipped apart as accents.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/2" In size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, how beautiful this one is, reminds me of grapes - well the colour does, such a rich shade to it. The embossing looks amazing and the sentiment says it all.

Hope all is well with you all over the sea Sue xx

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh what a beautiful card this morning. I just love it ... it looks so rich but delicate at the same time ... if that makes sense. Well we all see things differently. This is one that I must have a try to replicate ... and I know many friends who would love to receive this. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone who needs them today. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

Hi Sue. What a surprise today. I was just thinking yesterday that you seem to have adopted a more minimalist style of card which really helps us to keep postage costs down and then you present us with an explosion of flowers today. Love it.
