Balance note card

Hi everyone! It's the first Monday in March and as a guest designer for Bombshell Stamps, I'm happy to share the project I created for Muse Monday. We're featuring the Lotus Garden set this month and will be showcasing new creations made with it every Monday. This beautiful stamp set will be on sale all month long!

I used the large lotus stamp to create my Balance note card. I used varying shades of green with just a pop of pink. Green is my favorite color, and I love it with pink! ;)

I stamped the sentiment on a stitched flag die cut and layered it vertically on several more flag die cuts to go the length of the card.

I left the inside blank to use as a note card, and embellished the lower left corner with a small stamped lotus flower which I left uncolored.

I love sketches and wasn't able to play with Bombshell's January sketch, so I was happy to use it for this note card! ;)

I'd love to enter my Balance note card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory cardstock; Cricut Greens cardstock
  • Bombshell Stamps Lotus Garden stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Copics: YG61/63/67, R81/85, BG000, B00
  • Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Sentiment Flag die
  • Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Petite Ovals dies
  • Large pink flat-back pearls

If you haven't checked out the Lotus Garden set in the Bombshell store, you really need to! It's absolutely gorgeous and there are so many possibilities! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
