Fabulous Flowers

I used this set, Fabulous Flowers, for my Fabulous upline, Candy, who had a birthday yesterday!  She is the sweetest, most generous gal…love her!  Her favorite color is BLUE, so you know I had to make her a blue card, right?  I knew she’d love the Faux Denim background technique on this one.  Yes, I learned this technique on Technique Junkies!   (December 2007)  And, remember my "starts" basket?  Yep….I pulled ALL these elements out of that basket!  (I’m patting myself on the back…lol!) 

I started with a piece of Faux Denim and stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs with Night of Navy for a subtle look and used the Ticket Corner punch on each end.  Then cut out the large flower stamped with Bashful Blue Craft ink on Whisper White.  Then cut out the center of a flower stamped with Night of Navy Craft on Whisper White.  Since I had some extra of that flower, I cut out a portion of it and tucked it behind the Bashful Blue one.  Then I tied some Bashful Blue Taffeta Ribbon around the denim layer and the Celebrate tag from the Oval Punch.  (Fundamental Phrases).  It is hard to see, but in the center are 3 small clear rhinestone brads.  The large flower is popped up with dimensionals.  That’s it!

Today I’m having several fellow demo friends come over so we can work on our swap cards for Convention!  Yeah!  I’m in pretty good shape, and today should wrap up a couple of my organized swaps.  Still need to figure out on what to do for my Shoebox swap…yikes!
