Another peek!

I am LOVING the Fancy Florals set by Verve Visual. The sentiments are awesome! It will be available to order on August 20th here. There are so many different things you can do with it... I just can't wait for yall to see!

For this card, I used Jen's sketch, with my own little twist of course. I couldn't resist using this new May Arts ribbon....so perfect for Fall, I think. My Creamy Caramel card base measures 5.25 x 5.25, and I stamped the flower centers in all 3 sizes on it in the same ink. Then I sponged it with Close to Cocoa to soften it a bit.

This DP is from the new Cosmo Cricket line, Gretel. I mounted it on Chocolate Chip cardstock, and tied the ribbon around the whole card base. The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Paper Accents Pearlized Cream paper. I sponged it, mounted on Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, and then popped it up on another layer of Pearlized Cream with Mini Pop Dots. Layered over the ribbon just a bit, and finished it off with a row of piercing on the bottom edge.

I hope you all are doing well, I have been super slammed at work and trying to eek out any "me time" that I can! Guess what??? TOMORROW'S FRIDAY!!!!
