It's just FABULOUS!

This might be the most "favoritest" card that I have ever made. I knew i was going to love this set (Fabulous Flowers) but I had no idea just how much! I have made a bunch 'o cards with it and I can't believe it's versatility or beauty. The prima-like flowers are to die for!

The background on this card is a Technique Junkie Newsletter technique: Cottoned Color. The large flower is made with mixing chalk colors with the Poppin' Pastels Technique, and each of the little flowers have a dot of red glitter in them. The pearls adorning the rick-rack are from the "pretties" kit. I am still using Guava and Red!

The card on the right uses my Cuttlebug for texture, plus that fabulous prima-like flower in the middle of the scallop. Little Pieces adorn the background of the Turquoise strip; One of the Big-Pieces stamp is on the scallop under the flower, too.
I happened upon this color combo -- Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate and Tempting Turquoise -- and I think it really works with a dash of white! Hope you think so too. I did a couple more with similar color combinations, but I need to scan them because I want to show you the detail on the cards, and my camera is not capturing it.


Here is another combo I like -- Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi, and Blue Bayou.

This card uses the Modern Grid Technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I really like the way this turned out. This uses Garden Whimsy, Define Your Life, and Little Pieces. I put some Crystal Effects on the butterfly, too, to highlight the butterfly more.
