I can’t believe the roll I have been on – will it last?????
This card has been created for 2 challenges, the sketch over at Mary-Jo’s Blog which is a Blog Hop. The other is from Handstamped Sentiments which is a theme – Summer. I know it is hard to imagine summer here in Australia at the moment, but I did use paper & stamps from a past Mini, which I thought suited the challenge well.

I stamped images directly onto the Whisper White Cardstock, using Old Olive Ink & adhered to the piece of Tempting Turquoise. I did stamp off a couple of times for some of the images. For my sentiment, I used Early Expresso Ink.
I run the piece of Old Olive Cardstock through my Bigshot using the Embossing Folder – Square Lattice. It reminds me of Bamboo & Thatching, so thought it very appropriate. This was then adhered to Tempting Turquoise, to the DSP & then to the Base Card – Old Olive.
I stamped my flower onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Daffodil Delight Ink, cut it out & adhered using a SU Dimensional. After stamping my inside, I then decided that the front looked a bit “Yuh” so I then stamped 2 smaller flowers using Tempting Turquoise Ink. I adhered these using SU Dimensionals. It bought the whole card alive. Much happier. I added 3 Rhinestones to the center of the flowers.
