Spring Mini bloom

On first impression, you're probably thinking: this is card on its side, isn't it?

Card using Bloomin' with Beauty and Stampin' Up! suppliesStampin' Supplies
Ink:
Basic Black
Handsome Hunter
Rose Red

Stamp sets:
Bloomin' with Beauty
Floral background
Occasional Greetings

Watercolor Wonder Crayons in Rich Regals

Even though I made this card, when I was cropping this picture of it, I actually rotated it to make it portrait - and thought "Doh! That was completely unnecessary". It's probably because I have seen so many great cards made with the blossom standing up that this is almost...unnatural. Some of you may have cleverly based your frame of reference on the piece of Hodgepodge Hardware in which case I give you 100% *hands out gold star stickers*

Hubby is another case. When I handed this card to him, he held it such that the flower was upside down. That's just too lateral, Hubby! *stamps foot (no rubber stamps involved here btw)* *rotates card for Hubby* I suppose it is Karmic comeuppance for my previous naughtiness. *sigh*

Anyway, this is just a reminder that Bloomin' with Beauty and the luxe Purely Pomegranate Wide Satin Ribbon is in the Spring Mini and like all blooms, the Mini will be just a lovely memory too soon. So make sure that you finalise your wishlist from that mini catalogue and submit your orders before November 30 comes around.
