MOSS & CALLA LILLIES

I love this card! Maybe it's because it's calla lillies, or because it's muted, Old World tones, or maybe it almost monochromatic. Whatever it is I just love the way this turned out and it definitely more "me". I enjoy playing along with the various color challenges on differents websites & blogs but the cards I make in those challenges never satisfy me. (e.g. Tuesday's Valentine Clown).


I purchased this wonderful stamp from Stamp Oasis at Rubbernecker.com. I also purchased two other similar floral stamps that I now can't wait to play with. Don't be surprised if the next couple of posts show tulips or daisies!!!!


I stamped, colored and cutout the lillies then matted them on OldWorld DP I purchased at Hobby Lobby, Basic Black and Mellow Moss. The Mellow Moss card base was embossed using the CB Textile embossing folder. The ribbon is SU!Mellow Moss Taffeta.


Thanks for visiting today.
