Bloomin' Beautiful!!

Another case, but LOVE how this one came out! I believe a similar card was shared on my demo list, SUDSOL awhile back. This is very simple, but absolutely beautiful!

Bloomin' Beautiful is the set the flower is from. I'm always tempted to use purple of some sort for this flower, but wow-it really pops in red! Real Red to be exact! Card base is Real Red. The white layer is Whisper White, and cut 1/2" smaller than the card front. I then cut the Basic Black layer 1/8" larger than the Whisper White. Generally, I use 1/4" layers, but I wanted a very small black around the white. The White was embossed with the Finial Press Embossing folder with the oval craft frame, leaving the center plain. The flower was stamped in Black Stazon and colored full strength with Real Red & Glorious Green markers. Note from experience: Be very careful not to smudge the ink! The Whisper White has smooth coating on it, and it takes that ink a little bit to dry completely. I added a Real Red grosgrain ribbon with a Silver ribbon slide from the Hodgepodge Hardware kit for the finishing touch.

Enjoy! Hopefully I can keep this posting streak going, looks like we may have another snow day tomorrow. School is closed already based on the forecast, but we'll see what morning brings before I decide if I'm going in or not.
