FTL100 using Itty Bitty Buds

Natasha has posted her 100th sketch on the Clean and Simple site - she must be so proud. I love the clean and simple approach and her sketches are always an inspiration to me. Here's this week's sketch:

And here's the card I was inspired to make:

I cut a Whisper White card base and stamped a design on it using three of the flower images and a leaf from the Itty Bitty Buds hostess set. The edge of the pink dotty designer paper was scalloped and cut to come two thirds of the way down the card.  I stuck a strip of Ballet Blue grosgrain ribbon and a large bow to the top of the DP and adhered the top only to the card base, leaving a flap which can be raised to reveal the stamped design underneath. The DP was stamped with a sentiment and a stem from  Itty Bitty Buds and decorated with flowers that were stamped and cut out.

Itty Bitty Buds is probably my all-time favourite hostess set. It's like a mini garden in a box and you could stamp with it every day and come up with something new! Remember, these hostess sets are not available to buy - they come free when you host a qualifying party or make a qualifying order. Itty Bitty Buds is only available until the end of September  so if you'd like to get your hands on a set, contact me to book a date for your party today!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog today. Hope you're having a great weekend.
See you soon.
