Blooming with Happiness

I got this adorable hostess set yesterday and was so excited to play with it. I started by stamping the blossom dress on shimmery white paper with black Stazon. Then I went to my box of markers and pulled out some of the soft subtles. I colored the dress and loved it immediately. Then I pulled out the Almost Amethyst card stock. I'm having a little love affair with that color lately. On the amethyst base I first stamped the Canvas background in Almost Amethyst. Then I stamped the French Script in white craft ink over that. I also used the white ink pad to color the edges of the card and each layer before I put the whole thing together. Anyway, I tried several colors for matting the dress and sentiment and ended up liking the celery the best. Those layers are on dimensionals and attached to Pretty in Pink. But first I wanted to add an elegant looking ribbon. So, to me, that means organdy. I pulled out my wide white organdy and tied a big bow between the dress and words. I love the way that the ribbon just finished it off. I hope you like!

Have a fabulous day. Tonight is LOST!! yeah! And can you believe that today is the last day of February? Wow! Time is just flying by these days. My dad always said that the older you get, the faster time goes by. That is an easy one to see! So enjoy the moments you have today. Hug your kids, kiss your sweetheart, and have dessert first. heehee.
