CC174 Bloomin' Beautiful



Today's fabulous CC#174 is Groovy Guava, Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip - I love it!!!

I wanted to use a SU Stamp Set for a change....LOL - this *Bloomin' Beautiful* is still on of my favorites from the past Occasions Brochure. Isn't it gorgeous???

I have started out with Whisper White and added a layer of the *Afternoon Tea* DP which was also featured in the Occasions Brochure.

Next I have stamped the main image with Black Stazon and started coloring it randomly with Barely
Banana and Groovy Guava. The vase itself was colored with Chocolate Chip. Then I've trimmed the image and added some Crystal Effects and dried it with the Heating Tool. After it was cooled off I have added the smallest Pearls which I've bought at Michael's and raised this whole image with Stampin Dimensionals.

I have stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip and pierced right below it. To finish it all off I've added the gorgeous Satin Chocolate Chip Ribbon. Hope you like it??? ~TFL~
