For You Floral

Hello everyone,

Today's card is for a friend who has been ill but is now, hopefully, on the mend. I found a new blog this week, Card Makin' Mamas, and took advantage of the most recent sketch challenge to craft a great card.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Old Olive textured with the Sizzix Flourish dry embossing plate. The vertical elements are BasicGrey Green At Heart layered on Close To My Heart Smokey Plum. The ribbon is Offray. The focal element is Stampin' Up Vintage Labels sentiment and BasicGrey Aura flourishes stamped on Whisper White and layered on more Close To My Heart Smokey Plum. The embellishments are Amuse Pretty Pearls.

I love absolutely everything about this card! The colours work great together, the pearls and flourishes make it feminine. Of course, the BasicGrey paper brings it all together. It so great when a card just comes together and really works.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
