Bloom Where You’re Planted

Impression Obsession Butterfly, Bloom Where You're Planted

Bloom Where You’re Planted is this week’s theme for the Impression Obsession blog challenge.  As you may know, I love Impression Obsession and have become a regular in their challenges.  It allows me to ink up stamps and not leave them sitting around unused like we I so often do.

I used the Blender Pen Technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  I love to use my Tombows and seem to be using them more these days.

The stamp I used is Sunflower with Butterflies H1771.  I do love my sunflowers and was thrilled when I stumbled upon this stamp.

About the buttons, Al asked me why I added them.  All I could say was I needed to embellish the card.  What do you think.  Could this card stand on it’s own without embellishments?

Beautiful card Beth! Your stamp is a real smasher coloured to perfection as always. As for the buttons, they finish the card off beautifully. I would have used yellow or blue, but that’s just me. LOVE it! xxx

Hey there, dear friend! Wow! What a pretty card! Yes, this card could absolutely stand on its own, with no buttons…however! Being the button addict I am, I love the buttons…sorry Al! Thanks for sharing, and good luck!

This card could do with or without the buttons, either way it is a smashing card.

In relation to the size of your card and background, it definitely needs some embellishments. I would have chosen colored items though to pop against the pink and probably used 3 smaller buttons instead of 2.
The stamped image, I adore and the way you colored it too !

I think the buttons are important on this card. I kind of like the clear ones, they add texture without taking any focus away from that gorgeous stamp and your brilliant colouring!

Beautifully colored – love the pink butterfly. I think the card would have been just a sweet without the buttons but very sweet with them too!!!

Another card that rocks! Very sweet with the buttons. For myself I would have gone with three smaller buttons but then I have a thing for things in threes.

I love the stamp you used and like usual great job coloring.
