A quick share for the day

I received my order from Stampin' Up! this morning and decided to have a quick play. It was very quick because I am sure the card took me no more than 10 minutes from start to finish!
I used Very Vanilla for the base, topped it with Certainly Celery, Stamped my image from the beautiful Just Believe stamp set and the sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess set called Afterthoughts. The main image I coloured using Stamp n Write Markers Tangerine Tango for the flowers and a mix of Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi for the greenery just to give it a bit of depth. The sentiment I coloured with Early Espresso. I only inked the top section of the sentiment. The 'afterthought' on this stamp reads you dont have to share.
The beauty of using the Stamp n Write Markers is that you put the colour exactly where you want it, and use as many colours as you wish on your image. What better time to try out my new Embossing folder called Square Lattice so I quickly placed my stamped cardstock into the folder and run it through the Big Shot and Wow! what a difference that made. It lifted the whole panel from beautiful to drop dead gorgeous! I placed two Old Olive butterflies at the top of the card that I had cut and embossed earlier using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. To add a bit of interest to the bottom of the card I placed the Certainly Celery Ribbon acrossat an angle. I hope you enjoyed this share as much as I enjoyed making it. Cant wait to play with my other goodies and I will share with you as soon as I can!  Till next time.............Happy Stampin'
