Blooming with Kindness

Oh, I had fun with this one! I just had this urge to layer a few things, go floral, you know the feeling!
Blooming with Kindness is a beautiful new stamp - I love the flower and it's companioned with some wonderful sentiments. The Bird Builder punch is always waiting to be used, this time with the sentiment stamped right on the bird. The great Paris stamp comes from Postage Due.

A little Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin ribbon tied in a bow and, lastly, I managed to cover up most of the embossing - but it's the best little folder ever!

The tag comes from the Labels Collection Framelits - I just trimmed the sides, stamped it, embossed it and then added a touch of paper-piercing. A wonderful new Vintage Faceted Designer Button and we're done. Likin' it, likin' it!

Okay, now for the sad part! I lost my great little Paris postage stamp - and I've only used it once! Seriously,  I can't find it anywhere. Yep, I checked the wastebasket, the floor, you name it. I know it's somewhere - maybe it's a sign I need to clean my stampin' room!

What a beautiful card! What color is the cardstock base and matching ink?

This is a beautiful card Penny! The combination of stamp elements is great! I'm guessing card base to be Island Indigo and Midnight Muse ink?

I used Not Quite Navy card stock with Midnight Muse ink. Thank you for your sweet comments!

Penny, just found your blog today. I love the simplicity of your cards. I am determined to make cards that can be mailed without extra postage so simple is something I strive for. Thanks for sharing all your creativity. (love your smile)
