A bit of flower arranging!

Hey everyone.  Here with a card I have had in my head ever since Steph showed us the Love Birds stamps and dies released this month from Clearly Besotted.  I bought the Fresh Cut Florals from Wplus9 a few months ago but with Christmas and all that jazz – this is the first chance I’ve had to ink them up!  I die cut and stamped a load of flowers and leaves the other day and last night decided to get busy with a bit of flower arranging!  I adore the little birdcage from CBS so I die cut it in white and then made a “bed” of blooms for it to nestle into.  I am also slightly obsessed with the Falling Hearts die from Simon Says Stamp so used it again as a back drop created with embossing paste – you can’t see the dimension in the photo but it looks quite effective IRL!

Once again, I am able to enter the Wednesday Challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp blog as this time they are asking us to “Emboss It”.

    Wow, absolutely GORGEOUS, I have resisted buying the W9 flower set, it is so similar to another I own – however, I think you may have just “enabled” – LOL
