I love this card! I know I say that alot! Is it possible to love so many cards. I think so! This card was inspired by a card on Twila's blog, scroll down to the August 9th post. I just love the simplicity of her card and the line of pearls on the bottom of her main image. I did mine slightly different but kept alot of those same elements. Especially the pearls! I do LOVE this set. I think it's my all time favorite flower set. I know that's a pretty big statement to make but I love it and use it so often! I embossed the 2nd layer of cardstock with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Can you believe I only used one color of cardstock on this card. Hard to believe, yet the card looks so elegant! The only adhesive I used on this card is dimensionals. I sure love those little guys :)
The flowers are stamped in the new Island Indigo in color. So pretty. I stamped the stem in Wild Wasabi, who would've thought I'd end up liking Wild Wasabi so much. When it was an incolor a few years ago, I NEVER used it. Didn't even own the ink pad. Now I use it all the time, I think it's slowly replacing Old Olive--no that will never happen. I still love Old Olive, but I'm leaning to love Wild Wasabi too :) The other color used on the flowers is Basic Gray. I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Pool Party behind the flowers. Lastly I added the line of pearls along the bottom. Finishes the card so nicely.
