Best Wishes!

I made this card for a swap from my upline. The group is called where the rubber hits the road! I thought that was neat! Anyway.... I used pink pirouette, black, and whisper white! I love these colors together. Its one of my favorite color combos! The theme for the swap was spring, weddings, showers, etc. So I chose the butterfly and leaf stamp from the set called Forever friend and the Best Wishes came from Oval All. I love the new scalloped oval punch and this stamp set works perfectly with it and the medium oval. I used Stazon black because I like how dark the black is! For a little added embelishment I tucked folded ribbon pieces under the oval and put dazzling diamonds glitter in the open areas on the butterflies! This picture is not that great at showing how well the butterflies and glitter look! It was a cloudy/rainy day when I took the picture =(

Sweet and simple!

This is a card I CASEd from Crystal... We got together to stamp and I basically rummaged through her swaps to find the ones I wanted to have in my basket! Ironically most of them were ones she created! It was a 4 x 4 sized card and I just made it a little bigger and left off a stamp inside the scallop! I really like this simple stamp set. Its called sweet stems of course by SU! I used pink pirouette, baja breeze, and kraft cardstock. Watercolored the flower using aqua painter and ink pad.... and that was that! Pretty easy when someone else did the difficult part! Thanks Crystal!!

Which way is up???

It's been crazy busy around our home! Soccer season is in full mode... however it's year round so it is just getting crazy since we are back to our normal outdoor season. Two game a weekend end and practice four days a week! Sometimes I wonder which end is up! I keep thinking something has gotta give! So I am doing some thinking as to what changed we should make as a family to include everyone! Not just soccer! Being a parent is not always fun... making tough decisions is hard!
So this card really seems to sum up a lot! Which end is up? Which way does it look best! I can't decide but it bugs me that the flower is upside down in a couple of the views... which is just how the embossing folder puts it. You can leave me a comment to say which view you prefer!

I am thinking about adding a little dazzling versa mark to the embossed flower.... just to add a little something! I used the embossing folder from SU, Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, rose red, riding hood red ribbon, and black cardstock. Pretty simple yet elegant card!
