Wild About Flowers Retirement Card

It's new catalog day! Before I share today's card, I wanted to remind you that the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog is live today. I am hosting a party over in my Facebook group, and sharing lots of new products, plus there is a chance to win the beautiful hostess stamp set, Tranquil Tulips. Make sure you check it out!

Now onto today's card. This card is one I actually made a few weeks ago. My husband's aunt is retiring after being a teacher for many years. We wanted to send her something special, so I used some of my favorite things on her card.

Perhaps you remember this color combination? I told you that you would see it again!

Here's a close up of those flowers. I stamped them twice on Watercolor Paper, once in Berry Burst and once in Powder Pink, and then spritzed with water in my Stampin' Spritzer.

The amount of water you add will create that blurred look. I love how it turned out! I thought the Glitter Enamel Dots were the perfect finishing touch - they are different shades of Berry Burst, and I thought that the lighter ones complemented the Powder Pink too.

I hope you're enjoying all of these new products. If there's something you'd like to see, please leave a comment and let me know!
