Flourished Elements and Flourished Words

Good Moring to all. I got a break and am not working today....Yeah!!! So, this morning I am going to my great nephew, Tyler's soccer ball game. He is 5 years old and such a cutie! When he gets older, the girls are gonna swoon all over this boy! Usually I don't really have the time to watch much of the game as his sister Elsa Grace (4 years old) has me "wrapped!!" So we do whatever Elsa Grace wants...She gets bored watching the game. Usually it's "Aunt Bee, let's run!" What can I say, I do my best :) Hopefully after the game, we (meaning my sister, her daughter, Lisa; and my DD) will go out for lunch afterward and then maybe go shopping or to a movie. We have done that before and it is SO VERY MUCH FUN! Just the 4 of us.

On to the card here. I used Basic Gray Card Stock for the base and added some silver paper and white swirly paper I picked up from Michael's. I stamped Flourishes Flourished Elements and Flourished Words in Versamark and then embossed with Silver Embossing Glitter. I used silver ribbon on the right from A.C. Moore (you would think we could all get a commission for pushing A.C. Moore, Michael's, etc. products). I used a button I had from when we don't know. The flower was from a bunch from where we don't know. And of course the oval Nestabilities I bought from Flourishes.

I wish you all the best of weekends. Thanks for stopping by :)

This is a gorgeous card Velta. And your button finishes it so nicely. I bought a bag of buttons and this was one of them. It was my favourite of the lot. Thank you for visiting my blog and your kind
words. Please come again. I have
put you into my favourite list to keep your blogsite available too.

Gorgeous card Velta! It is so elegant and classy! Looks like you've been a busy bee while I've been away - love your cards. Have fun at the soccer game and whatever you end up doing after!

There is a lot of glamour revealed in this card. Very stylish. It has a polished feel. I think it would be great as a wedding card. The swirl design of the Flourish stamp imprinted on the swirl paper gives this card so much depth and character. I also love your use of the button and flower embellishments. You are so talented and creative. I love to view all of your creations.
