It's Release Day!

Have you heard the amazing news? Sweet 'n Sassy is the newest Splitcoast Member Company! We're all so excited and can't wait to visit with each of you over on our new Forum! But that's not all...Tonight is our Fabulous Fall Release Party! Starting at 8pm, visit the Release forum for challenges and reveals of all of the new August releases...Prizes are involved!! :-)

Today I'm sharing another card using the beautiful new set, Flowers in Bloom. I took a fairly simple approach to today's card, focusing more on aging the paper that highlights the floral image. I used distress inks, water, and some paper crinkling to age the paper and then I stamped the image. The black cardstock in the background was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder and then I matted the image on cream and kraft cardstock before attaching to the base. A quick addition of some twine and rhinestones (I've suddenly become the queen of adding three rhinestones to all of my cards!) were the perfect finishing touches!

Be sure to clear your schedule at 8pm tonight and join us for our release party...It's going to be a blast!!

What a pretty card Kim. Love that image and how you colored it. The distressed edges look great... and the dry embossed BG is perfect. :o)
