Any occasion card!

I was playing with my Hero Arts Flower Wallpaper stamp making the St Patrick's Day card yesterday and I stamped this kraft cardstock with versamark as the base for this card.  I used another Pure Innocence digi image by Heather Ellis - just adore working with these. 

The pale blue paper was one of the freebie papers from Inspire Me that came with this month's CARDS magazine.  It has a raised, stitched pattern on it - almost like damask.  I used my Spellbinders Labels 8 set to cut and emboss.  Added ribbon I had from the Container store! and used my new Martha Stewart Pop up Water Lily flower punch.  Love how dimensional it makes the flower.  Of course I coloured with copics!!!
Shari Carroll from Hero Arts did a great show on QVC UK last night - well done to her and HA.  They put together sheets of a selection of popular/favourite stamps - Collage, Playful etc.  It was fun watching her explain her techniques and show her magnificent samples. 

She was quickly followed by Tim Holtz.  It was just hilarious how quickly all of Tim Holtz products sold out.  Dawn Biddy kept telling him that if it kept up he would have to sing and dance (to fill his slot of one hour!) - they even started to stick glittery flourishes to him to pass away some time!  Hee hee! 

I treated myself to this..... have to wait 3 weeks for delivery .... cannot wait to delve into it.
Thanks so much for peeking.  Hope your day is great. ♥

Love your card, it's so cute. The colours and flower really look good. I also bought Tim Holtz's book and accessories. Wasn't it great to see all the lovely things? Looking forward to seeing what you come up with once you get your book.
