Aqua Mist and Cake

Papertrey's Piece of Cake stamp set is one I've had since last fall and never used. Shocking, I know. I have been going through my Papertrey stamps and trying to use some of the older ones. I love them and buy most of them, but some have yet to see ink! I decided to use Papertrey's new Aqua Mist palette ink, ribbon, and cardstock. I cut my rectangles using nestabilities and then stamped the cake image. I stamped the flowers using Water Lily Green palette ink. The colors work very well together. I wanted to try a different way for making my bow, but I think it turned out a little big. The centers of all the flowers have clear Stickles, making them nice and sparkly. I love how Geny lines the inside of many of her cards and stamps inside so I did that to my card. You can see a hint of the flowers in the corner inside. Lining the insides makes them look so finished. This card could easily be used for a wedding or a birthday. Be sure to stop by this weekend or next week! I have some exciting news to share.

This is gorgeous. Great layout! I have to stamp on another layer in my cards too - or else they look unfinished to me.
