Just for You

It's been too long since I've played with these Garden Picks floral dies. I was inspired to add the subtle white-embossed script in the background by this beauty from Betsy.  And as I've been doing some spring cleaning, I unearthed a large supply of paint chips, so I thought I'd use them once again.

supplies: white cardstock, various paint chips, Altenew Garden Picks dies, sentiment from Tammy Tutterow, script from a long-retired Hero Arts set of woodblocks called Artistic Windows, tumbled glass distress ink and a blending brush, Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Lattice die, Doodlebug heart sprinkles

I love the vintage feel that the script in the background gives - I must remember to use this tiny detail more often.  Using paint chips really opens up the possibilities for color.  The drawback for me is that many of them have a shiny backing, so it was a bit fiddly making everything stick together.  A good trade-off, though, because I love the results!

Enjoy your day, and I hope your week will be a great one, thanks for stopping by.

I love the white embossing with the hints of color for your background and the flowers are just wonderful. I love that Filly Franes Lattice die too.

Lin you transported me right back to my card-making-beginnings! Paint chips were my go-to 'colored card stock' and I loved the great big chips the most!
Your bouquet is stunning - and love your little Bluebird, too! Which always make me say... have a zippity-doo-dah kind of day!
