Flowers...

Happy "Hump" Day to you! My house has been in a bit of discord this week. Kyle is going through finals, and needless to say our house has been a bit stressed out over it. He only has a few more days and then he is off for the summer, and becomes an official sophomore!

I have a JustRite card to share with you.  It uses two of the new sets, Heart Scroll Background stamp and Botanical Medallions and Banners.   For the background, I heat embossed it using Versamark and white embossing powder.  I brayered it with two shades of purple and wiped off the excess with a tissue.  I distressed the edges a bit with brown ink.  I added this beautiful rhinestone trim from Sharon's Stamp Simply store. I took a bit of vellum and created a ruffle to tuck under the trim. 
The flowers were also stamped in Versamark and embossed in white.  I pulled out my very dusty Twinkling H2O's and decided to play around a bit with them.  The sparkly leaves were done with the left over vellum and green H2O's.  I hand cut them and added them behind the popped up flower.  The sentiment is also from the Botanical Medallions set.  It was stamped in avocado on a little tag I had in my stash.  I attached it behind my popped up flower.  
Summer is right around the corner.....just two more weeks of school!  I am looking forward to those more relaxed days with no homework, no finals, no clocks to punch! I am blessed to work in a job that allows me the summers off!
Have a wonderful day!
