Celebrate Your Day

I do have more single layer cards to show you, but just for a little variety I thought today I'd upload a celebration card I stamped recently using the embrace life set. I used naturals white card stock and basic black ink, then colored the cherry blossom images with my old olive, regal rose and rose red stampin' write markers. To reduce some of the white space I sponged in a little tempting turquoise in between the flowers.

I mounted the stamped strip on a mat of rose red and old olive, then added some regal rose wide grosgrain and attached the whole thing to a tempting turquoise base. To finish the card I just added the sentiment from the Celebrate Everything set stamped in basic black.
