Best of...Flowers

Oooh...I absolutely LOVE the card I have to share today!  Do you ever get stuck on a color combination?  Right now I am absolutely loving the Pool Party/Tempting Turquoise/Crumb Cake combo.  Can't get enough of it...and have another card with the same combination to share in a couple days!

I found a card like this on Pinterest and "Stampin' Up'd" it.  Did you notice the background paper?  It's the Natural Composition Speciality DSP...why, of why did I not fall in love with this paper sooner?!?!?!?!  Each sheet is clear embossed with a pattern.  *love, swoon*

My main shape is cut with one of the window frame framelits.  You will need to cut one for a background, part of one for the side and part of another for the bottom.  To get the mottled look on the flowers, I used sponge daubers and just randomly inked up the image with the colors.  It's finished off with some fun ribbon and a little bling in the form of 2 super sparkly rhinestones!

Here's a fun tip...putting rhinestones on polka dot paper makes it a cinch to line up those rhinestones!  One on each polka dot!

I love this card and the layout so much, I just may use a version of it for my convention swaps this summer...unless I think of something else more fun!
