ANOTHER DAY FOR A BLOG HOP - WEDNESDAY

ARE YOU HAVING FUN YET??
I know you have enjoyed seeing all these fun projects from everyone on this hop, because I HAVE TOO!!  They are certainly some very talented gals I am hopping with, aren't they? And fun too!!

I have another flower card to show you.  This one is simple, but has a bit of pop to it.  I can't call it clean and simple because it uses stampin' dimensionals on one of the flowers and then the ribbon with the slider I made, but I think it is still a simple to do card with a lot of WOW!!


My card base is Blushing Bride, sponged with Calypso Coral around the entire edge.  The blossoms are stamped with Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and Daffodil Delight.  The another coral one was stamped on whisper white cardstock and punched out with the new Blossom punch.  I also punched out a second middle punch and put that also on a dimensional to add some more texture.

I used the Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon and slid it through a slot I cut in the Four Frames Stamp set image so it is now a slider on the ribbon.  I stamped and punched out a "hello" from the hostess set Posy Punch.  That is where the middle of the punched out flower came from also.

This closeup helps you see how pretty and subtle the stamped blossoms are in daffodil delight and the lucky limeade, and how nicely the calypso coral coordinates with the blushing bride card stock.  PERFECTION!!  But my slit on the left of the slider was a bit too long,..so sorry.  But you get the idea!!

CARD #2:  Here is the same card changed up a bit.  After I looked at the first card for several days, I felt like something was missing.  So I got out my aqua painter and used the daffodil delight and calypso coral ink pads and lightly colored in the petals on the flowers.  I would LOVE to hear what you think.

I think it especially helped the main flower in calypso coral just POP for your eye, don't you?
