A Beautiful Flower for YOU! :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Another beautiful image for you from The Rusty Pickle. I love the simplicity of this flower. and the great thing about it is that you can color it for any season and to match any papers. Put a few together and you have a lovely bouquet. Big news is that sneak peeks start on Monday for a neat line Michelle has designed! All of the DT will have peeks, so be sure to check out everyone's blogs!!

I went back to one of my all time fave EVER Basic Grey paper collections for this card - Stella Ruby. I haven't used any of these papers in a while and figured it was about time. I love the colors, flowers, gosh, just pretty much everything about them!!! Only certain parts of the flower have been painted with my shimmerz. Much to my absolute horror, I discovered that I was almost out of my beloved, treasured, pink shimmerz paint. oh my goodnes gracious me!!! what was I to do?!?! I just automatically grab that paint for EVERYTHING, so didn't rally pay attention to the fact that the pot was almost empty. So thankfully i {heart] papers came to the rescue!!!! my new pink shimmerz will be here the first of next week - phew....... what relief..... I was almost in panic mode!!! grins! doesn't take much to keep me happy, but what does is usually pink and shiny! giggles! The pink trim is from Webster's Pages. The little leaves are from some May Arts leaf ribbon. a few buttons & baby primas with distressed stickles in the centers complete the card.
Enjoy your day! Talk to you soon!
