Beautiful Double

Howdy everybody!!!

My goodness I can't believe I finally finished this card.....
Monday's are usually pretty busy around here.

Miriam's preschool had a "Royal Ball" today and I'm still exhausted from all the action!!! It was pretty cute - kinda like "Halloween" when everybody is dressed up in their "Princess" outfits.

Anyway - I was hoping she would fall asleep on the way home, but no luck - she was all wired up!!!

It's about 4:30 pm EST and now she is sleeping....

So I had to think fast and this is what I came up with.

The base of my card is River Rock. It was layered with Chocolate Chip and a DSP from Basic Grey called "Motifica". It comes in a 6x6 Scrapbook Pad with a bunch of different paper - great colors too!!! I actually cut two different DSP at a triangle and matched them in the middle.

Then I took a Very Vanilla CS and layered another Chocolate Chip CS on top. For this card I used the "A Beautiful Thing" set and stamped the sentiment on the bottom. The edges of the VV CS were distressed.

In the meantime I've stamped the flower image with Versamark on Very Vanilla CS and embossed them with gold EBP. They were all cut out and raised with Stampin Dimensionals. I also added a medium gold brad in the center of each flower and finished it of with the DS River Rock Ribbon.~TFL~!!!
