Be You(Tiful)

What a drastic change in the temperature today.  This morning it was hot and humid, then a thunderstorm rolled through, and now its decidedly chilly.  I was hoping that the lawn would be cut today as its my Open House tomorrow, but the grass is too wet.  Oh well!

This is another sample card for the Open House tomorrow:

This is really the first time I have used Photopolymer stamps and was pleasantly surprised.  I guess I had a bias against them feeling they weren't quite up to par with the regular stamps from SU.  But they stamped very well, and, they did not fall off the clear blocks.  They did, however, stain a little bit.

Stamp: Flower Patch
Inks: Basic Black, Rich Razzelberry, Blissful Blackberry, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral
Papers: Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Accessories: Flower Patch framelits (Note:  there is no framelit for the darker multileaved stamp, but with the photopolymer stamp it was easy to stamp over the Pear Pizzazz die just eyeballing it), 3/8" Tangelo Twist stitched satin ribbon, dimensionals
