Monday Montage #256

One of these days I may actually get a  handle on my life and get back to something that may slightly resemble "normal"  ... it's been months and months of chaos around my house. Sigh ... maybe this IS my new normal. I have  many, MANY lovely new stamping supplies that I haven't even opened! I'm hoping after I get back from OnStage in Houston next weekend that my schedule starts to cool off! However, I DID get to stamp with some new things for this week's Monday Montage Blog Hop! YAY ME!

Yellows and blues are so yummy together.  The Encircled in Nature Bundle (which is an Online Exclusive) is sooooo perfect for Spring. I haven't done this type of fun fold in a very long time. Basically, I just folded the front of the card back on itself and then used the Encircled in
Nature Dies to create a layered wreath which I stacked on top of it.

I made a small panel on the section of the front of my card that had been folded back. I then used one of the Basic 3D Embossing Folders (love me some dots!) to add some more dimension. I did do a lot of fussy cutting to make the Balmy Blue and Azure Afternoon "buds' on thee wreath, but I love how it turned out. I colored the flowers with Lemon Lolly and Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends. I then stamped the sentient using Pecan Pie on a small piece of Lemon Lolly paper that I tore around the edges. Using the Adhesive-Backed Swirl Dots and Pecan Pie Edged Ribbon and added some accents to set off the wreath. All in all, I love how this one turned out!
