Imagination Crafts Mid Month Inspiration

Hi Folks
We are now halfway through March and time for some mid month inspiration for our challenge over at the Imagination Crafts challenge blog
Our theme for this month is:
Imagination In Bloom

You can enter with any project but if you use any Imagination Crafts product you could win a £40 voucher to spend in store.  So get those Imagination Crafts goodies out and have a go.

Here is my inspiration project using a gorgeous clematis decoupage stamp and a sentiment stamp.

I started off by using an embossing stencil to emboss some parchment.  The parchment was then attached to some green card using some little metal brads.  The sentiment was stamped onto parchment and embossed with white WOW embossing powder.  I used a spellbinders die to cut it out and matted this onto another spellbinders die.  The clematis stamp was stamped onto parchment and embossed.  I cut the flowers out and added them to the card together with some white fabric leaves that I had in my stash.  Some dazzlers in the centre of the flowers was the finishing touch together with some small pearls on the background.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries to our challenge.  Just pop over to the Imagination Crafts challenge blog where you will find more gorgeous inspiration projects from my wonderful teamies.
