Happy Tuesday! Hoping to see lots more sunshine today :) I have a card today I made for the Stampendous! 2011 Winter Catalog. This is using one of the new beautiful flower sets released this year called Narcissus.

I used a greeting from the Sincere Sentiments Perfectly clear set. The pretty lacey ribbon is from Creative Impressions. I colored the flowers to pick up the color scheme in the pp from Graphic 45.

Here's a side view so you can see that one of the flowers is raised as well as the sentiment piece with its layers. Its also easier to see where I added some dimension to the centers of the flowers with some Stampendous! Honey embossing powder, applied using a Versamark pen.

Papertake Weekly: Lemon ZIngy (yellow)
Cute Card Thursday: Signs of Spring
Spoon full of Sugar: Vintage/shabby theme
Alphabet Challenge: R is for Ribbon
Craft us Crazy: Be ONE with NATURE
Tellen's Place: Embellish, Embellish, embellish

OK, that's it! Off to run some errands. Never ending. I've been doing laundry all morning and now my "break" is to drive around town. Joy.
