Stop and smell the flowers!

I've been using my leftover Mimi paper again. I know that makes Suzann without an e extra happy. I needed to make a birthday card. So, I thought well this is pretty feminine paper. Let's give it a try! Holy Toledo what do you know, a card that I supremely love, love, love.

My angel buddy Shirley was having a bit of difficulty with the paper piercer. I gave her a few tips. Now, I'm going to forward this post to her. I hope it helps to explain what I meant. I'm really bad at explaining things.

So, without further adieu........



I used Barb's (FosterDesignHouse) idea for the flower. It really gives it dimension. Then I inked the edges. It blended in with the background to much for me. I felt like it needed a little extra pop.

What do you think?

LOVE this card! The paper piercing is perfect (try saying that fast 3 times). And I've been using Barb's little flower trick too. It's awesome.
