Flowers & Pearls...

I think I am getting a bit too dependent on these felt flowers and pearls..lol. I seem to be using at least one of them on every card lately. Oh well, I do love them! I hope you guys still like to see them.

Today's card is for two challenges. The first is this week Off The Wall Craftiness challenge. I haven't played in a couple of weeks, but I could not stay away from this week's colors. Aren't they pretty?

I'm also using the sketch from Mercy Kerin's blog this  week, seen here:

So, here is what I came up with for today:

I left a ton of vanilla space. I usually don't like to do that, but I just liked it the way it is. I think perhaps a layer of the really rust would have been nice over the vanilla. What do you think? Maybe one embossed with my Square Lattice folder from SU. Hmm, yeah, I think I would have liked that. Oh well, it's done now..haha!

Well, I have to go now. I've got some cleaning to do! Have a wonderful week..

Stamps: Kind Words (Verve); Fancy Flourishes (papertrey)
Card Stock: Vintage Vanilla, Scarlet Jewel (papertrey); Earlt Espresso, Really Rust (stampin up)
Ink: Really Rust, Bravo Burgundy (stampin up)
Extras: Scarlet Jewel grosgrain (papertrey); Pearls (stampin up) Flower from Prima

I really like the "vanilla space" (too cute!) because I think it showcases that pretty flower perfectly! Although I know how you feel about that square lattice folder, haha! This is just gorgeous! Very, very elegant! :)

And I would never be tired of seeing your felt flowers...LOVE THEM!
