While I was checking out Cindy Haffner's gallery (SCS featured stamper), I noticed she had a number of card created using sassy stems. Sassy Stems was one of the stamp sets I had delivered on Saturday so I just had to make another card casing one of Cindy's cards. Here is Cindy's card.
I changed the colors for my card using cool caribbean, lavender lace and so saffron. I have heard a lot of talk over recent months about cool caribbean and was looking forward to it getting here - however I must say after all the excitement I am a little disappointed (only a little LOL) as when I checked it up against another card I own it is really exactly the same and I have had it for years - wish I had known that earlier I might have used it more.
I am not too happy with my white gel pen, I think it is time to get another, I had to keep shaking it while I was doing my stitching - it still appears to have ink in it but I guess this one has lasted longer than most others I have had.
I used the bottom of the other flower vase (pictured) to create the background on the lavender panel. My other change to this card was using an embossing folder for the base card, I used my new dots & spots.
