Orchard Blossom

Yaaaaay! I'm thrilled to find out I'm an Honourable Addict over at Addicted to Stamps, so a big "Thank You" to their lovely DT.

My card today is for three challenges

The colours are from Addicted to Stamps,

the sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday

and Friday Mashup want to see   NATURE                                                                                                             

Here is my card

I stamped the branch several times on white card and added them together to reach through the frame. I then added some blossoms with pearl centres, leaves, and butterfly with gem body. The sentiment was added on 3D pads with another butterfly.

Supplies :
Card = Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Stippled Blossoms, Clarity, Papillon Potpourri, and Tea Shoppe
Inks = Chocolate Chip, Adirondack Meadow, and Blushing Bride
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Bitty and Elegant Butterfly Punches
Extras = 3D Pads, Gems, and Pearls

I've made this card for my Sisters birthday on Tuesday. Ali has a plum orchard where she keeps her donkeys, and I thought the flowers would remind her of that ( also it makes a change from the usual cards I make for her that are dogs or donkeys!). I hope she likes it

It's still scorchio here, and sleeping at night is impossible, so I'm very tired and suffering with my RA, and now my new best friend is a big oscillating fan. I hope you're mangaging to cope where ever you are.

Bye for now


  1. Congrats on your card last week. And another fabulous entry. I love how you have created the scene with the branch reaching through the frame-cool idea.

  2. This is just stunning Bev! I love the way you made a delicate looking blossom with that flower. I'm loving the scorchio weather but I can imagine it's not easy when you're coping with RA. Thank goodness for that fan! Vicky x
