Chalkboard Flowers
I love the mixed fonts and the sayings in this new level 1 hostess set, Best Yet. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy on Very Vanilla card stock and punched it out with the Wide Oval Punch. Then I trimmed the left hand side even with the edge of the card and clipped on a silver mini library clip with a little bit of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon tied to it.

The flowers were stamped with Whisper White Craft ink on Night of Navy card stock. After heat setting them, I colored them with Stampin’ Pastels (Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, and Sage Shadow). The scalloped Very Vanilla edge was created with the Scallop Edge Punch.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Striking card, Vera. Of course, I love the scalloped edge and the fresh look you gave the sentiment! The pastels look wonderful!
