Day 249: Blossoming Friendship Card

Have you seen the new Muse Card Club Challenge? It's a beautiful floral card by Tracey McNeely to stamplift and inspire! I've been doing a lot of holiday cards this month, so it was fun to break out the Hollyhock ink and florals.
I used a new set called Blossoming Expressions, which I've had but hadn't broken open yet. It's a two step stamp set, which is one of my favorite styles. Basically you stamp the bottom/solid layer in a lighter color (in this case that's second generation Hollyhock ink). Then you stamp the detail image over top using a darker ink (full strength Hollyhock). I love the detailed effect with no coloring - like a super fast highway to Adorable-ville!
I used a post-it note to mask and layer the blossoms. I added leaves and the sentiment using Olive ink. Then I popped on a few pink enamel gems for some texture. Now I'm back to working in Studio J!
