Treasured Blossoms: August Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month

Hello everyone!  Today I'm sharing a clean and simple all occasion card using The Rubber Cafe' KOTM for August:

Card base:  5&1/2" by 4&1/4" black cardstock.

Layer 1: 5&1/4" by 4" piece of coral cardstock.

Layer 2: A 1" and 2" strip of black polka dot pattern paper, with two 1/2" pieces of gold mirror cardstock one glued to the center of the 1" strip, and one tucked under the top of the 2" strip.  I tied a seam binding bow around the 2" piece before I glued it to the card base.  All pieces adhered with Scrap Happy Glue.

The flowers and leaves are stamped in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, and colored with Copic Markers.  I curled the petals up slightly with my fingers, added a bit of bling to the centers, then glued them down using Scrap Happy Glue:

I added a button from the MME chipboard, with a small piece of seam binding to the 1" gold mirror cardstock strip to finish it off and liked the "You Are Treasured" on the button as an everyday sentiment.

It's always great to have a few all occasion cards tucked away!

Thanks for stopping by the cafe' today!  Stop back soon!
