Fancy Floral


Well, I finally got to do a non-HM card tonight. Just needed a change of pace, and this was one of those stamps I hadn't yet had a chance to open. What I ended up with was not what I had in mind when I started, but this is how things developed. I was planning to use my new Parisian Summer DP from SU!, which I did use, but the colors in the pack, while gorgeous, are very soft so the pink that I planned to use looked too washed out. I had to go with Perfect Plum for the main CS paper. All the other papers are from the Parisian Summer, except for the ivory which is from PTI. The image is the snowflake flower from Flourishes Summer Botanicals. The ribbon is Lemon Tart from PTI's Perfect Match series. The half-pearls are Kaiser pearls in the Chocolate. The buckle is from SU's Antique Brass Hodgepodge. I've got new stamps coming, but I also have company coming, so hopefully it won't be too long and I can play with my new stamps. Hope you have a wonderful Friday. Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to all those who left birthday wishes for DH. He enjoyed that. Will be by to see what you all have done as soon as I get a chance. Hugs, KrB
A quick edit to this post....One person who left a comment on my card at SCS does cards for the military and anyone can get involved. Check out this blog: http://cardsforheroes.org/ Wonderful idea. I'll be looking into it further.

Oh my...this is so very elegant. I love the flourishes in the corners, the buckle, and the gorgeous Parisian Summer paper. I didn't have this on my wish list, but it is going to be on there now. I really, really love the stamp. I don't have any Flourishes stamps...think that's gonna change;o) Another beautiful KrB creation. Love, love, love it!!!

Beautiful, love your colors.

This is so lovely. I like the colors you chose and the little Cuttlebug die corner embellishments. I have that die and haven't done much with it but probably will now because your card inspired me. Have a great week.
