What a Great Weekend!


I really did try to work on making the photograph on this ensemble better, but I was really havin a time with the lighting in the room, probably because I took it at night time. So sry about that.
I used Paper Trey Ink's Lillie of the Valley stamp for this one. The white background is embossed with PTI's Picknic Plaid Impression plates...I just love the dimension it gives. I colored the flower with my copic markers and added Diamond Dust glitter to each flower. The butterflies were a whimsy addition. The ribbon is also PTI Green Moss...me thinks...I made a cupcade box with cupcake inside. I got this template from http://www.creativecutsandmore.com , where they have tons of 3-d items for you to enjoy and they make great gifts to add to your cards. It even came with the acetate to cover the top of the box. This was for a friend who had received a promotion and was leaving our office. We will miss her, but wish her the best of luck!
Have a great week, stay productive but most of all healthy! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your encouraging coments!!!

I clicked on the photo to see the embossing on the card and WOW!!! The texture and dimension the embossing adds is amazing! What a lovely way to wish someone well as they move on to new opportunities! Everything is beautifully detailed and I love the colors! Glad you got your pc back in working order again and have a great week!
