Celebrate you! - Creative with Stamps #16

Saturday July 1 2017
Welcome to another month long challenge at
This months theme is Celebrate... I know we just had some graduation celebrations so that was on my mind so I made a gift card holder for a female.. Lot's of flowers.
This is my card to hopefully inspire you.. Give you some ideas.. I used Simon Says celebrate stamp and various flowers from different sets. I masked off part of the sentiment as I only wanted the Celebrate you.. I then stamped a bunch of flowers. I colored them in with colored pencils. I added some white gel pen and Nuvo drops to some of the images. I then made a gift card / money envelope from a Lawn Fawn die. I have this awesome silhouette die from Impression Obsession so I used the female .. that is why all of the flowers.. and added it to the envelope. The little circle piece by her foot is to hold the flap close. I added some Nuvo drops to the envelope just to dress it up some. I think it came out ok.  If you need ideas check out what the design team did for their celebrate cards.
