The Fairest Flower


Carolyn needs no help from me selling her newest set,"Framed Flowers" because she makes some of THE prettiest floral cards I know of, but I gotta try and do my girl justice because she's always there for me! I love how easy these are make for making quick, elegant cards, and the extra smaller individual flowers and leaf are great for backgrounds or anywhere you need to add a little something! This card took five minutes and was inspired by one of the first cards of Carolyn's I ever saw, a stunning back and white floral background with her monogram in the middle. This paper is from the DCVW All Dressed Up glitter stack(and is black and ivory), I knew right away it would be perfect with these delicate flowers. I inked up just the "friend" from one of her greetings in the set and added stickles to the center of my flowers. I notched a place on my focal point mats for the ribbon to peek out from under and added a few adhesive rhinestones to the corner. Now I can pull this card out of my basket for any lady, any time!
