Happy Sunday! And back to work tomorrow - (Ugh!). Why do weekends seem to fly by and weekdays drag?

I have a pretty card to share with you today.  The idea came to me as I was working on my Paper Pickle class cards. So I experimented with a couple of Stamping Bella stamps, and since I don't have very many of the 'flower' stamps (which is about to change, my list keeps growing of stamps I need) I decided that Dandelion Bunches seen to work the best for what I had in mind.

I embossed the Dandelion Bunches on cream card stock using Ocean View E/P. I've had this for quite a while and have never used it.  It seemed to match the papers I choose to use the best. I then layered it on a piece of aqua c/s. Then I punched out 3 layers (cream, aqua and dk brown) using my EK Success scallop border punch.  The DP paper is from Basic Grey - Cappella line - like who doesn't love this line- it is gorgeous, it seems to work well for any occasion - wedding, birthday, sympathy etc, just an all around universal line of paper.
The flowers just seemed a bit bare, so went rooting through my sentiments trying to find something small enough that would work (again, I have lots of sentiments on my list to get as well- I have very few).  I like the Celebrate definition but didn't want to use the whole definition part, so I masked off the rest , inked up Celebrate and stamped it using Versafine Sepia.
I finished the card off by adding some ribbon and some tiny pearls in the corners of the center piece.
Thanks for peeking in my cupboard today.  Have a great week.

See you soon,
