I have a beautiful floral inspired card for the Creating Kindess Design Team blog hop to share with you today and joining us this month as our guest designer is the super talented Sue Vine from Australia!  I love Sue's style, it is very similar to my own.

My motivation for making this card was purely so I could play with this amazingly beautiful background stamp called Breathtaking Bouquet.  It is currently available in the Stampin' Up! January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue on page 31 and I bet you didn't even notice it!!  Go on, go take another look!

There is so much that can be done with this stamp set and I recently held an online class showcasing some fun ways you can colour this beauty without having to be able to colour.  I love to colour, however, and really took it to the extreme with this card!

I adore how it turned out.  It is the best card I have ever made IMHO and I am going to find it really hard to part with!

We have so much floral goodness to share with you this month as you can see from the graphic above, and next up is my good friend Tanya Boser in the USA.  Little known fact: Tanya and I were also team mates in our Artisan year!  I love designing with this chick.

  1. I think you need to frame it, Paula. Your colouring & combinations are phenomenal. I want to colour like you if I ever grow up. :)

  2. OH ... MY .... GOODNESS!!!!! This is the most lovely card I have seen made with this stamp set Paula!! I really love this stamp and I am so going to have to try colouring it up like this .... although my colouring skills are nowhere near at your level! :) xxx

  3. I'll say it again .... all hail the Colouring Queen! This is truly design and maybe one you should keep and frame. Or I have a frame that would fit it. Insert cherubic winky face here.

  4. You deserve all the praise. This card is so striking! I think you should frame it!
