I love the You’ve Got This stamp set and I’m really sad to see it go.  I love how it has a distressed background stamp and then of course, the beautiful flower stamp.

I was inspired by the card on page 101 of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.

I used Wisteria Wonder as the base of the card and I stamped the distressed background stamp twice on a piece of Old Olive cardstock.  I embossed the flower in silver on watercolour paper and coloured it using the retired Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends and the continuing Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I then cut it out and added lots of dimensionals on the back.  I added a bow using Powder Pink finely woven ribbon.

I then stamped the sentiment in Powder pink on matching cardstock and used the 1 3/4″ circle punch.

I will be sad to see this set go but I think there will be lots of lovely news ones to play with!!

Next up we are heading over the pond to Sandra in New Zealand.  Can’t wait to see what she has created!
