AI July Release - Pressed Petals


I have another Artful INKable's gem for you today! This card used the recently released set Pressed Petals. I really must be into the soft sky and old olive combo lately....the colours just keep popping into my hands all by themselves - honest! lol

I started this card backwards! I usually start my cards with my coloured images and then work to the base. This time I had the idea to create a little frame for the sentiment and incorporated the design with the flowers. I started quite literally from the base of the card to the top. This card looks complicated but is really quite easy to make with your handy dandy nestabilities (I think that I would shrivel up if something ever happened to my cuttlebug and nestabilities) LOL - by far my favourite crafting tools ever!


The sentiment is from another July release called Basic Salutations - this is a really nice set to have because it has some beautiful sentiments in lovely fonts and it includes an angel policy stamp *bonus* :)
