tip: to make the white flower stand out a bit on the white paper i took my sponge daubers and shaded a bit of the always artichoke chalk behind the flower. Can you see it? It was hard to get a good shot of it, but in my hands... it really helps it stand out a bit!

ink: always artichoke, pad & marker
stamps: 2 step awash with flowers, medallion
tools: color spritzer tool, sponge dauber, stampin pastels
accessories: rhinestone brad, fleurettes, retired so saffron ribbon(dress up group), stampin dimensionals

The ribbon is also retired from the grouping called Dress Up. kinda a vintagy feel w/ the worn white lacy effect.
Below you can see my 'stamped off' flourish behind my sentiment. i inked it in crumb cake and then stamped it once on scrap b4 placing it here. Then inked my words in Cherry Cobler and put it right over top. I like the softness w/o it looking too bare. Then pop it up on dimensionals.

ok, today's card, fun color combo eh? I've never used the curly label punch b4 for my sentiment but i like the touch today, what do you think? Ridinghood red is gonna quickly become a favorite of mine i know it! here i colored my flower w/ the stampin write markers, gave it a good 'huff' and then stamped r down. some torn edges and the spiral punch give it a good 'worn' feeling!
paper: choc chip, certainly celery, ridinghood red, whisper white, daffodil delight
ink: certainly celery, ridinghood red, daffodil delight
stamps: water color trio, really retro(both retired)
tools: curly label punch, spiral punch
accessories: yellow button, stampin dimensionals, ridinghood red ribbon(retired)
tip: have no thread??? no fear cut a tiny sliver of a color of the paper on your card and 'thread' through your button! A mini glue dot holds it in place beautifully!

As I browse through the new catalog(which is LIVE TODAY btw!!!), there are always so many fun & new accessories to choose from. I usually want them ALL, but my wallet says "no way".
