Hello, Sweet Blogging Friends!
Welcome to my little blog,
and to the reveal for a lovely new stamp set by Sparkle N Sprinkle and Beccy Muir called
Available both digitally and in rubber, it's a pretty set that is suitable for several occasions.
I used the rubber for the wreath, and the digital for the sentiments:
The first card is flat for mailing:
Nuvo Crystal Drops - Pearl White were used around the circle. The image is stamped and colored with markers. The sentiment is digital, part of the same set.
Some of the flowers are popped up because the wreath is recessed behind the basketweave layer:
Instead of layering the flowers directly atop the flowers beneath, I off-set them a little:
Nuvo Drops were also used in the flower centers with a touch of glitter.
A Pretty Yellow Wreath is always a friendly sight!

Lastly a sweet pink card with lacy elements:
The bow is made from my Great-Aunt Agnes's stash from the 1940s or 1950s. It's a pale pink with large scallops and scallops in the scallops (giggle).
While this frame is also popped up, it was done a bit differently:
The result is a much sturdier frame, and it looks fabulous in real life, easier to adhere, and gorgeously sparkle-full! I imagine a less sturdy cardboard would have been just as acceptable:
Thanks for stopping by today!
