Blended Bloom for My Friend

This is the first Blended Bloom I did.

I finally got it on a card.

I used the Rich Razzleberry set of Blendabilities.

I really like them for coloring and the rich look they have.

But when I set it aside and proceeded to do one 
with the Daffodil set, I got splatters all over this one.

It was easy enough to fix by adding some more dots.

I've learned to take the tops off away from any work
and to leave the tops loose until I'm finished.

I can't wait until Stampin' Up! releases more colors.
And until they release these colors to the public.

is You've Gotta  Have Friends.
I'm blessed with many and one
will get this card.

And speaking of friends,
Darnell is still holding her

Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

and since this was the first time I used
this stamp and the Blendabilities
and I have the added feature of being for a friend,
I'm going to enter this challenge for the 3rd time.

If  you have never visited Darnell's blog,
be sure you do.  She has a delightful way with words
(or non-words as is often the case),
 and is always very positive and upbeat.
I always leave her blog with a smile on my face
and often with a few giggles too.

I hope you'll click on the links and check out these challenges.

Thanks for the visit.

Wow--what a gorgeous flower & beautiful card, Bonnie!

Carol L said...

This is one stunning card and I really like the razzleberry colors with the yellow center! I splattered my blue blended bloom card recently too while removing a yellow cap, which is why mine was fussy cut! LOL Those caps are tricky aren't they? :) Great NBUS entry!

Kim S said...

Beautifully colored - it is so realistic. And the splatters were a happy accident - they look like sun spots!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That Razzleberry is such a gorgeous color and makes for a wonderful marker. Yum yum! Love it!
