Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to my post for Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday Blog Hop, to celebrate the lovely Kelly's birthday by sharing some of our creativity.

I wanted to share a card I made with the beautiful new Perennial Essence DSP and stamp set that is coming in the new Annual Catalogue. I just adore this DSP as it has these beautiful impressionistic floral images on every sheet and if you look closely you can see the brush-strokes the artist used to create them. 

Because the paper is just so lovely, I didn't want to add a whole lot of additional detail, so instead kept it fairly simple with the sentiment and some flowers fussy cut from the Floral Essence stamp set.  The ribbon is also from the new catalogue, Organdy Striped Ribbon in Petal Pink, and I used my heat tool to make the ribbon crinkle. I really like this effect, but you do need to be careful not to melt it too much!

Happy Birthday Kelly, I hope you like your card :)

Time to hop on over and see what the lovely Leonie has created for Kelly's Birthday Blog Hop.

Happy Stamping
Monique
