blissful blooms...

I actually have a couple of cards to share with you…amazing, I know.

Both cards are made of entirely the same papers but one is accented in white while the other I’ve chosen to highlight the reds. 

I don’t know if it’s the kindergartener in me or what but I just love fussy cutting beautiful paper flowers. Cutting out just the flowers or other special elements is an inexpensive way to achieve the look of die cut accents to your favorite paper lines. If I really like a paper or if I like both the front and back side of a two sided paper I always buy a couple of sheets. That way I don’t mind cutting snips out here and there. I still have a whole sheet for larger layouts or several cards.

The pretty hand dyed wrinkle ribbon is from MemrieMare. I love, love, love this stuff.

 I also finished a layout page that I’ll share with you soon. Here’s a sneak peak at my “inspiration station” for it. 

Pretty muted shades of color, don’t you agree?  I love it, too.  Be back to share the finished project soonl

I'm linking with CR84FN color challenge...

Really great work Patty! I love the colors and use of the crochet lace. I can hardly wait to see what you are working on now when it is finished.
Have a wonderful creative day!

I haven't been able to view you and it's good to be back. I'm going to go scroll through the posts I've missed, it looks like you've been busy!

Blessings, Debbie

Beautiful work, Patty. Thanks for sharing where you got the ribbon. I visited that site and will order some things. I don't do much work like yours, but think I can use some of the "pretties" for my sewing. Love the red ribbon and the way you used it. So glad you are sharing your inspirations.

I love these! Wow - you are so creative and inspiring :o)

Thank you for dropping by my blog and inviting me to yours. I look forward to hopefully having granddaughters someday and getting to experience raising girls!
