Bring Your Own Sunshine!!

Good morning!!! I wasn't sure I'd have a card for this morning...I thought this one would take me a few days to figure out...but surprisingly enough it turned out the way it looked in my head :)  Verve is having another Project Parade this month. The theme is Fun with Flowers!!  Yay, Spring!!  And yay, Verve flower stamps!!  Ever since seeing this beauty from Laurie, I've wanted to make these vellum flowers.  Everything went well except that when you emboss on vellum, it is very delicate and chips like a bad manicure (if you've ever done this, you KWIM!!)  I plan to use white craft ink next time instead of Versamark.  Then at least if it chips, it will show white underneath ;)  (just like a chip on a white vehicle).  I was thinking of making this a wedding card, but really wanted to ink up this verse from Feel the Sun

I layered the large blossom from Love's Flower, paper pieced the leaves, and adhered everything with dimensionals.  Pearls seemed like the perfect centers.  I really like the cream ribbon on white...it almost looks like a light buttercream.  I also got to use my new Nestabilities Labels 12 :)  Julee always has great giveaways during a Parade...one winner out of the entries and one winner for commenting on the Diva posts throughout the parade.  I hope you can join in the fun...it goes until April 7th.  Have a lovely Thursday :)  My extra long weekend starts at 3:00 :)

I love this Maureen! The flowers are gorgeous, I have been wanting that set since it came out, must get it. The simmer paper is perfect, I don't have any of this either, adding to wish list. I love the gingham leaves, perfect pop of color. Beautiful! :)
