I tried again with the Fine Lace background and Elegant Eggplant ink. This looks a little dark in the scan but isn't so IRL. I did the background on the EE cardstock, as well as the huge flower. I added a smaller flower with brad for the center. I like this too, but a brighter color may have been a better choice! I'll keep playing-I have 98 more flowers!!!
I've had one more thing I've been meaning to try-and I finally made time tonight! Chipboard! I've had some hanging around here for quite a while, but never accomplished anything with it! For this card, I started with the new textured CS from SU! You can't really see that in the scan, but it's there. I like the look it gives! I took the chipboard flower and covered it with Lavender Lace CRAFT ink, then dumped on the Hologram Highlights embossing powder and heat set. Love it-VERY sparkly! I added a brad to the flower, a simple stem saying and a small bit of ribbon. Simple and Sweet!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to be back soon! I'm trying hard to get back in my routine of making something each evening.
