Mum's order

Hi Guys,

Mum needed a birthday card for her prayer partner. I saw this one on Splitcoast (I'm a shocker for CASEing everything but my work week sucks up all my brain power & I need to use other people's brains on my days off LOL). I loved the simple 2-tone use of the '5th Avenue Floral' daisy. It also gave me a reason to break out my new marina Mist CS, it is such a pretty blue, I love it. I used it with Not Quite Navy and So Saffron for the flower centres.

I decided against the embossing, instead I added some interest with the new 'Wonderfully Worn' background stamp, I really like the effect it gives. A sentiment (retired US) and one of the new rhinestones and I was done. I hope Mum finds it ok for the intended recipient.

Must run, off to have morning tea with my neighbour,

Fi xox

Just beautiful, perfectly elegant. I love the colours, especially Marina Mist. I haven't managed to get it just yet, it's going to be on my next stamp club order. I love the scalloped trim too, a perfect detail. This is really lovely Fi, I'm sure your Mum loved it. Xox

Absolutely nothing wrong with CASEing - they say it is the most sincere form of flattery. I love to CASE too, there are just so many gorgeous creations out there, I can't NOT try to make them all! lol
