End of Term Blog Hop for House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the 1st of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards and this month it's also the End of Term blog hop. These last six months have flown by!

Here's the photo inspiration for this month...

And here's my card. I've teamed the sponsor image from the Blossoming digi stamp set from MHK Designs with stamps from the Botanical Blooms stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Card: Flirty Flamingo, thick and regular whisper white
Ink: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Emerald Envy (background) and same color Stampin' Write markers (image) from the 2016-2018 In Color pack
Stamp sets: Botanical Blooms
Tools and embellishments: Ovals Framelits (retired) and Wink of Stella (I promise, it's there!)
Adhesives: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

Please now hop around and see what my amazingly creative teamies have for you...

    I love how you have used the vintage style flower image with the modern look of the beautiful backgrounds, I think you created those too, and I love how they have so much colour but don't overpower everything else.
