Awash with some Baja, Plum and Pear Pizzazz

Soooo....I have been creating.....yep that's right creating!!!! Lots of it too. I guess that's what Convention does to you- gets those creative sparks firing and makes you want to create just for the love and joy of it.
My first card that I am posting tonight I created with the colour challenge set by the fabulous Tania Gould of Just Add Ink. Really lovely colours too. Here they are:

And here is my card:

Project Recipe
Stamp Sets:     Awash with Flowers; Vintage Labels (retired)
Card/Paper:    Perfect Plum; Baja Breeze; Whisper White; Pear Pizzazz DSP
Ink:                    Baja Breeze; Pear Pizzazz; Perfect Plum; Versamark
Accessories:    Oval Nestabilities; Scallop Edge punch; Clear Embossing Powder; Dazzling Diamonds; Baja Breeze striped grosgrain (retired) 

  I have wanted this stamp set 'Awash with Flowers'for such a long time and it is finally mine. I really LOVE it and I am having such fun playing with it. I hope you can see how sparkly the big tulip is. I used a 50/50 mix of clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds to make it shiny and sparkly all at once. My bow is of course a Teneale Williams bow- these little babies are going to be popping up all over the place after her amazing Workshop WOW at Convention. It looks a lot fuller in real life.

You won't quite believe it but I have another card to show you in my next post. I'm on fire- hahahaha.

Oh, this is BEAUTIFUL, Louise! The colours work perfectly with that gorgeous stamp set (that I'm just a teensy bit jealous of you, for owning, LOL). The sparkle is beautiful :)

Such a pretty card Louise. Love your ribbon/button detail.

I too want this set - one of these days it will be mine!

You certainly are on fire. Love your Teneale inspired bow and your card is 'awash with gorgeousness'. It was lovely to meet you at Convention and I loved your cute little 3D swap.
