No Sentiment???

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC225, Krafty Saffron Nights! Wow! I totally LOVE these colors together!

For my card, I used a BRAND new set from There She Goes (a set that I cannot seem to put down!!), called Bloom! This set ROCKS my world! The images are gorgeous and I love EACH and EVERY sentiment in this set!

Can you believe that I did not put a sentiment on my card? Crazy right? Well, I thought it would be nice to have some general cards that I can stamp a sentiment as I need them...that way I always have the "right" card on hand for any occassion!

I stamped these gorgeous flowers onto Choice Snow White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with Copic Markers. I framed my flowers in Oval and Scallop Oval Nestabilities, and added some piercing around the So Saffron Oval. My Kraft panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the Textile Embossing Folder and I then ran my Whisper White Craft Ink Pad over it to highlight the pattern.

I added two stripes of So Saffron Patterns DSP and then added three brads (they were Not Quite Navy but I made them darker with a Copic Marker) and finished off my card with two ribbon knots of Whisper White Organza Ribbon (my current favorite ribbon!).

You can get Bloom right now over at There She Goes! I think it is a MUST have set for any stamp room!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
