MIM: Decreasing Apertures

I know, it doesn't really sound like a card-making blog post title, but I promise it is!  This week's Make It Monday technique is really fun.  I was very much inspired by this card by Cristina.

And here's a close-up:
I embossed the black panel with the cane IP (of course!),
and stamped the inside-most flower and leaf parts with Bitty Background Blocks.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
stamps - Bitty Background Blocks, Think Big Faves #6
paper - kraft, white, black, hawaiian shores, aqua mist, raspberry fizz, hibiscus burst, new leaf, certainly celery, vellum
ink - white, black
acc - cane IP, beautiful blooms dies, sending you dies, button dies, dimensionals

I love this. Thought about using these dies for my MIM, but am glad I didn't because your card is spectacular, and now I can just CASE it!! Love the colors you chose, and the way you drew stems and cut leaves for the flowers.

Oh, wow! This card is fabulously beautiful! Love the colors you chose and that large font sentiment, everything just works so perfectly together.

I loved that card by Christina, too. Such a show stopper. Like yours! ;-) Love it.
