Bali Breeze Thanks

I seem to have a thing for Bold Brights lately! With Spring Break this week, my husband has been home (he's a teacher), so I had a bit of time to play! Here's my attempt at some patchwork! I used my 1 3/8" Square punch to punch out some Bali Breeze paper. Then I layered it on the Purely Pomegranate cardstock strip and stamped with All in a Row in Basic Black to create the faux stitching look.

The flower is from Embrace Life, coloured in with my Stampin' Write markers. For the leaves, I punched out some Old Olive with the 5-Petal Flower punch and arranged them underneath.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: All in a Row, Embrace Life, Artfully Asian
Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Old Olive
Paper: Bali Breeze, Tempting Turquoise, Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: 5-Petal Flower Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
