Fun mail day and a little project!

Well, today I got my Decorated Swap from Becky! Girl outdid herself! I couldn't believe all the goodies, they just kept coming! Thank you soooooOoo much Becky for your generosity!!!

My little project looks simple but it took me like 2 hours! And I'm *still* not 100% satisfied with it. I think I ruined it with the brown flowers stamped on the bag. It looked too plain without them so I figured I'd go for it, but I don't know if I like it or not. Bummer!

The main panel was stamped with the leaves from the **gorgeous** new Beautiful Blooms set from PTI! I stamped it in versamark and clear embossed it. Then I sponged it with Soft Sky, wiping off the excess. Next I used a stamp from my new Oval Borders and Corners set and cut it out with my Oval Coluzzle. I stamped a few random flowers from Beautiful Blooms with Groovy Guava, Soft Sky, and Chocolate Chip and mounted them onto the panel with dimensionals. The "friend" sentiment is also from Beautiful Blooms, I like it because it's such a unique font! I finished it off by threading a piece of Groovy Guava ribbon through and added a satin and paper flower with a K&Co rhinestone in the middle! The Groovy Guava piece that the whole image is mounted on is cut on top and bottom with scallop scissors:) You can get these adorable white or kraft coffee bags from Papertrey, they're so fun!

Have a great night/morning/whatever time of day it is for you:)

Amber, Out.
