Petal Party

Petal Party by judkajudy
Petal Party 30-113   Delicate Pattern 40-047
I've used the Transparent set Petal Party for this card, as well as the Slapstick stamp Delicate Pattern, both by Penny Black. I stamped all the images in VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added color by using one of the pads that attaches to the distress ink applicator without the applicator. I find I have more control applying the distress inks in that manner. I arranged the three flower images, using some pop dots for dimension. I applied dew drops for the flower centers and a few at random on the lower background. I layered green and white ribbon to divide the card into sections.

I think that background stamp is perfectly named .. it does provide a "delicate" setting for these flowers.

Mom, Dad and baby are doing well. This Grandma is excited about meeting Evelyn Rose in ten more days!!  One of my best decisions was to enter the 21st Century and replace our antiquated cell phone that only took phone calls with a new cell phone that allows photos and text messages to travel back and forth from Evelyn's parents to her grandparents here in Alabama.  My kids are amazed that I am finally texting!!  I am loving the instant communication but I am so afraid I will turn into one of those people I see in restaurants who are paying no attention to their meal or their dining companions because they are either texting or reading their texts.  It is a bit addictive!!

Have a great day, whatever it holds!! And thank you for stopping by.

This is the most beautiful card I've seen in a long time, Judy! I love those soft colors and you have applied them so very meticulously! Great work, my friend.

Forgot to say that Evelyn Rose's picture is just adorable; her skin isn't even splotchy like a lot of newborns.
