Cherishing Her and Country Bee Card

The Close to my Heart Stamp of the Month for February is a Gorgeous stamp set called Cherishing Her.  
No matter what female you have in your family, this set covers them all, even a friend. OR, use just the sentiments for cards for ANYONE, male or female. 

The colors of cardstock and Inks that I used here are White, Black, Saffron and Lemonade. 

The stamp set is Cherishing Her, which is available this month only for $5 with a qualifying purchase. 
It was stamped with CTMH Exclusive Intense Black Ink, Heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then colored with TriBlend Alcohol Markers

I also used Country Bee and Love and Hugs from the Angel Hugs Stamp Set

The Black behind the flowers was cut with the Stitched Brakets Die Set.

I stamped the light side of the Lemonade cardstock with Lemonade ink using just the flowers from the stamp. 

The Saffron Cardstock was dry embossed and edges sponged with Saffron Ink. Sentiment was also stamped in Saffron Ink and edges sponged.

For the finishing touches, I added Gold Stickles to the center of some flowers and Gold half pearls at the top left.

This is such a beautiful card and I love the combination of the bouquet and bee images together. The color palette is perfect and I like how you have color blocked the background with the embossed card stock! Really nice job! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Cut It Up!
