Stampin Dreams May Blog Hop - Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Hi everyone,
Today I am participating in the Stampin' Dreams Monthly Blog Hop for May and our theme was going to be New Catalogue Sneak Peeks. However, because of delays (for obvious reasons!) many of us have still not received our pre-orders so don't have anything new to show you. So instead I am bringing you a card made with one of my favourite sets which will be carrying over into the new catalogue - Inspiring Iris. I used this set for last month's blog hop too but today's card is very different.

Inspiring Iris - Stampin Up

I love the stamped flower panel on this card but I have to admit I'm a bit less sure about the stamped card blank. I used the "Happy Birthday" stamp from "Itty Bitty Greetings" (which is also carrying over) but it didn't really work out as I had envisaged. The ribbon is the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon, which I have coloured with a Highland Heather Blends pen. Love that we are able to have any colour ribbon we need by doing this!

Inspiring Iris - Stampin Up
