Embellish Color Trends Challenge [Text]

Happy Friday, everyone!

Welcome to another fabulous challenge that Embellish has prepared for you…

I am delighted to share that our sponsor for the challenge is Hero Arts…Yay!  They have a wide and fabulous collection of stamps, and as you know, you can find their products in their store as well as other virtual stores and some local craft stores 🙂 Now, let’s talk about the challenge. This time, we have some trendy colors and some beautiful images as inspiration. It is required that you incorporate “text” as part of you project… which I think is pretty cool 😉 Of course, there is a fabby prize… and you can find more details about it by clicking here🙂

My card features a woodblock stamp set called:  Words and FlowersThis set is very nice, and I think is perfect to create a card set  with it 😉 To make my card, I stamped one of the images on  a piece of black cardstock using Versamark.  I heat embossed it, and then, I stitched the border.  I stamped the image again, but this time I did it using black ink on white cardstock. I trimed out the flower, I added a brad to it, and I adhere the piece to the black stamped image with foam tape. I finished my card by stamping a sentiment  from Sending Smiles Messages setand I  added some pearls along with a cardstock strip to embellish my card…simple, simple…
