Pretties Fun...

Sorry I've been slacking on the blogging. What can I say? It's been hard trying to play "catch-up" after our vacation. But I wanted to share this card. I made this card originally for the Color Inspiration Challenge I did awhile ago. But then I wanted to change it a bit, but still keep the same basic layout. You can see the one I submitted HERE. On to this card...
This flower is from the Pretties Kit. I LOVE these flowers. There are so many different things you can do with them. Below you can see that I just stamped directly on to the flower with my Polka Dot Background stamp...

And that YUMMY Corduroy Brad in the center! FABULOUS! :) Then here is a tin I altered with one of these same flowers...

I just sticky striped some ribbon around it, then made the flower accent to put on front. I colored this flower in with a Aqua Painter and some ink refill. This was really fun to do. Then I just made my center for the flower (a circle designer brad here) and all done. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting!
