Metallic Burlap…

There’s no good reason why I’ve waited to get ink on this Burlap background stamp.  But now that I have, you can see it makes the perfect background for this metallic bouquet…

Silver , gold and copper flowers?…yep.

The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set combined with the Bouquet Bunch Framelits made putting this card together a breeze.

The 1/4″ Copper Trim ribbon makes a beautiful bow to hold the bouquet together.

This might make a nice Christmas card option and I could see using this as a wedding card too!
