Blossoms Abound

Blossoms Abound
This week's Featured Stamper, FS 185, at Splitcoaststampers is Heather aka PrincessHeather. She has an amazing gallery! I chose to CASE this card.
I didn't stray too far from her card. I am not too crazy about 2-step stamping, but I had been dying to use Blossoms Abound stamp set, and this was the perfect opportunity. It was actually a cinch to do!

I was going for a "vintagey" look, and I hope I succeeded.

  1. I distressed the paper as best as I could: crimped, spritz with water, crumpled.
  2. spritzed all layers with SU!
  3. Champagne shimmer paint
  4. Used leftover ribbon
  5. machine stitched - A first for me!!!
