She wants fabulous, that is a simple request, all things fabulous...

How's the weather up there? Down here it's YUCKO!! It's cold (30-40 ish) and rainy, and just plain gray. I'm ready for Spring!! So I thought I'd bring a little Spring to myself. This card makes me smile!

I found this Imaginisce paper a while back at a new store just north of Dallas called Scrappin' Bunnies. I didn't know when I'd get back up there, so I bought several sheets of this striped paper (that comes already glittered!!) as well as a few more from the collection. I love the colors in it!

The flowers from Fancy Florals (the remixed clear set) were stamped with Versamark on Soft Sky, Pretty in Pink, Celery, and Banana cardstock, then embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I cut them all out and then popped them up onto the white panel. A clear bauble in the middle of each flower set it off just the way I wanted. Then I added the sentiment (from the Uplifting Phrases set) and some Pink Taffeta ribbon...fabulous if I do say so myself!!

Well I'm off to watch Trading Spaces...anyone else glad that Paige Davis is finally back? I'm such a nerd, I know, but the show was horrible without a host. I'm also going to work hard on doing some of the challenges from last week (yeah yeah you don't believe me, but I really am!!), so stay tuned for more fun! Have a great day!
