Bloomin' Beautiful Stamps

I just received this set last night, I have been wanting it for a few weeks now and thought I better get it before it was too late. This set is out of the Mini occasions catalog which closes at the end of the month. I wasn't sure it would make it into the new catalog. For the colors I chose the base is pale plum and layered with Whisper White, then used Almost Amethyst that was cuttlebugged for the next layer. I then did a white and pale plum again with the image. The image was painted with reinkers in both the same colors and certainly celery for the stem. I used itty bitty backgrounds for the dots in pale plum again. Just a few spots of stickles for the shine.
I took my music player off, I read somewhere that most people don't like them on blogs and I do understand everyone has different tastes in music. Please leave feedback if you would like regarding this, I am always interested in other peoples feelings on anything. If you get a chance drop down to the bottom of my page and sign my guestbook.

Hi Jean, Such a pretty card and I love the flower image and your added sparkle. I personally don't like blog music and sometimes makes me jump if I have my speaker up loud. Hope you are having a great weekend, Hugs, Nikki x

This is beautiful!! If they don't like the music they can turn it off, sometimes it does scare me when it starts playing! LOL!

This is beautiful!! As far as the music thing-I don't mind the music, I can always mute, but I have dial up so the streaming is not smooth-I hear bits and pieces and it always startles me at first! But then I just mute!! Kerilou
