So, Wednesday I thought I was being clever posting a "snow day" challenge of sorts. At the time, our weather was a balmy 37 degrees, I was all decked out in a dress (Something I rarely do especially in the winter) and I was almost lamenting the lack of a need to wear my cute new winter hat...Well kids...be careful what you wish for! Later that day our temperatures plummeted into the teens, the wind picked up and we even had a few snowflakes swirling about. Not that any of them have lasted really, but seriously???
So...since a lot of us were really quite happy with the super mild winter we've been blessed with, I'm going to do my best today to tempt Mother Nature into calming her temper a bit and enjoy some flowers! Nice springy, fresh flowers. See? Aren't they pretty?
My card today is one I did by special request of one of the ladies at my dentist's office.
The card base is a 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 inch piece of Regal Rose. The front is layered with two embossed pieces; one of Pirouette Pink and another of Old Olive.
The center panel is stamped on Neenah Baronial Ivory and later layered on Pirouette Pink. I stamped the image in Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and Old Olive and then sponged the edges with Certainly Celery.
The top portion of the stamped panel is tied with a piece of 3/8 inch wide organdy ribbon with a few half pearls to finish it off. I used foam dimensionals to mount the panel to the card.
Thanks for stopping by today and happy Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful (ahem, warm) weekend!
