Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 65

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dara Gloden’s blog.  I am sure we all have something special to share today!

Well this past week or so I’ve had pneumonia!  Seriously???!??  I have been sick most of March.  I guess I am making up for years of not getting sick…..doing it all up at once.  I am so done with being sick though…..I haven’t done much stamping and I am totes missing it 😦

This card features the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  The large flower image is gold embossed on watercolor paper and then watercolored with Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Mossy Meadow & Mint Macaron.  After watercoloring, the image is fussy cut.  The background is one of the polka dot images cut out at 4 x 5 1/4 with a piece of vellum layered on top in the exact same size.  The sentiment is gold embossed on a vellum banner and stapled to the flower image.  Final touches are gold thread, a button and small white baker’s twine bow.

One thought on “dear friend…

  1. Gorgeous! Your watercoloring is beautiful, and I love how you embossed the flower in gold. So sorry to hear you’ve been sick! Take care of yourself, and I hope you are on the road to recovery.
