Today My Sweet Petunia is meeting up with Ink Blot Shop for some fun, and yes we have some prizes.

From My Sweet Petunia we have the following for one lucky winner drawn from the comments you leave on the blogs.
A Misti Original

 and one of the new Cut-Align.

And from Ink Blot Shop this wonderful package to one lucky winner who leaves a comment.


Now back to the card I made for today. I am using stamps from the latest release, being Get Grounded and Botanical Borders. 

  The Botanical Borders have 3 borders of floral stamps and a stamp of leaves. I am using two of the floral borders for my card, one on the outside and one inside.

In my Original Misti I stamped the layers on both my card base and my die cut panel, using Ranger Vivid Chartreuse along with Shadow Grey for stone walkway. 
  I coloured using Copic Markers in various colours and used a Yellow Green for the background. The die is from Penny Black called Elegant Stitching. 

Below is the inside coloured in yellows and oranges. 
I very much enjoyed these two sets that work so wonderfully together. 
I have also done a video showing this card, shown below.
