Beautiful Bouquet for Just Add Ink JAI #364

What a few weeks. Ever have those weeks where you just can't seem to get on top of all that you have to do? I was determined to get this card finished and I think I will just get it entered in the nick of time for the challenge this week over at Just Add Ink. Look at the gorgeous inspiration pic.

In a class I held yesterday we experimented with the new Embossing Paste from Stampin' Up!. I demonstrated this brick wall and thought that it would be the perfect backdrop for my bouquet of flowers.

The Beautiful Bouquet bundle is such a great set. It has gorgeous flowers, stems and fillers but the best part are the sentiments. Funnily enough I only used the smallest one here!

I thought it made a cute tag for the copper pot.

After my Embossing Paste was dry, I popped the mask back over the top and sponged Crumb Cake Ink over it.

I am happy with the result. This is just a short post today. If you want to see some more of my creations using Embossing Paste check out here and here.
