If the real thing don't do the trick...you better make up something quick...

I was totally inspired by Carole's Verve Challenge card HERE. So today I pulled out my bright colors & my Kraft cardstock and decided to play!

I know, it's super simple, but I really love it. I kept thinking, What else can I do to this? But the stamps just spoke for themselves. I did end up adding some Diamond Glaze (same thing as Crystal Effects) to the flower centers, but nothing big. The flowers are stamped on Pearlized (aka shimmery) white, so I didn't feel the need to add any more bling. (no, you didn't read that wrong. *grin*)

I hope you had a wonderful long weekend and are ready and refreshed to start the week! Have a great one!

Stamps: Petals & Stems, Fluttering By (Verve Visual)
Paper: White, Kraft, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!), Pearlized White (Paper Accents)
Ink: Groovy Guava, Tempting Turquoise (Stampin' Up!), Mango Madness (Versamagic), Versafine Onyx Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Cropadile, Gingham & Grosgrain Ribbon (Stampin' Up!), Pop Dots (All Night Media)

This card could not be any more perfect! The combination of the bright colors, the motion of the wavy stems, and the sweet ribbons - simply gorgeous. Wish I had a great big blue ribbon to give you, because this one deserves a prize!
