Warmest Wishes...

The beautiful inspiration photo we were to follow...
Happy Saturday!
How's your day going so far?  Hope it's a great weekend
for ya!  It's a sun shiny day here.  It's so good to see the
sunshine!  And, my thoughts and prayers do go out to all
of those on the east coast for the terrible blizzard they are
experiencing...please take care...stay safe!
I want to share with you a card I made for the
The Shabby Tea RoomI purchased some new stamps
recently from SU and immediately fell in love with
this new stamp set.  I'm sure I'll be using it a lot!
I wanted dimension, so I backed the frame with
cardboard.  I popped the frame and sentiment up
on dimensionals.  I used several flowers as you can
see with the pinks and the one white Prima flower,which
was inspired from the lovely inspiration photo.  I mixed
white and pinks for the ribbon treatment, also.  SU
dazzling details was placed on the flowers and frame
for the shiny glitter effect.  Lace, buttons, and gems
to finish my card.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so
much for dropping by today, hugs!
