Pretty Flowers



Sometimes, it pays to be persistent. I made so many mistakes on this card that it turned to be completely different than originally intended. The paper I've used is from the new collection "Luke & Lola" from 3 Bugs in a Rug. The green C/S in the foreground is the reverse side of another paper from the same collection. The flowers that are raised on Dimensionals were put there to cover up mistakes! What I was amazed to find out is that the SU cardsock in Bordering Blue fits perfectly with the patterned paper. Oh, and that ribbon from the Sherbert Riggon Originals from SU... absolutely yummy! Enjoy.


I was dying to compare Rangers' Adirondack Dimension Pearls with the Liquid Pearls. I find the Rangers' has a bigger spout and therefore the flow is thicker. I prefer the Liquid Pearls but the colors in the Rangers' collection are beautiful. If you look at the closup you'll see the pink dots (Liquid Pearls) around the flower are smaller than the Green ones (Dimensional Pearls). But I love the effect of both. The Crystal Effects was used in the middle of the big flower over the stamped "Amitié".
