Bloom and Grow!!

One of my fav Verve stamps (honestly there many favs) Bloom & Grow. Worked perfectly for me for the CR84FN48 challenge to use light pink- yellow- neutral (my choice was SU's crumbcake) and went a little shabby for this card. Also, played in the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.


Cardstock is SU crumbcake with some MME Lost and Found Market Street on top. Stitched and distressed with TH Antique Linen/SU distresser and a little tearing by hand. Added some Wild Orchid Crafts lace that I tea dyed a while back. Large flower is a mistable that I distressed with the TH Antique Linen Distress ink.. loppy flowers were made with Lil Inkers loppy bloom die using MFT felt. Sentiment is from Verve's Bloom & Grow set stamped in  SU soft suede and heat embossed with clear.

Here's the inspiration....


And the fabulous colors that totally fit the inspiration pic... (in my humble little mind anyway!!)















Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Today I have been a cooking... potato soup, bean salad, roast, noodles, salsa ( my youngest DD's fav) and DH is boiling peanuts!?!? Recipe from Southern Living....we'll see!!

PS... yes the lace should have been moved a little over to the right... acting like a leftie??

Vickie, this is so heavenly! I spied the Lil Inker flower die right away, as I have one of those as well. Saw this at Tuesday Trigger. :)
