*Caribbean Big Blossom*

Another day of spring-is-coming temperatures. Gotta love it! I was able to get away for a pedicure this afternoon after work and now my toes look like spring too.. bright pink polish and some beautiful white flowers complete with BLING!

I love BLING!

Another thinking spring card from me today. I used some stuff that's been sitting and waiting for me to use it.

I started with a Cool Caribbean card. I wasn't sure about this colour.... I'm still not. I don't use it much. Cool Caribbean and Marigold Morning are the only two "In Color" colours I have not ordered more than one package of paper of (does that make sense??!!).

I then took the Big Blossom stamp (2007 Sell-A-Bration) and inked it with Versa Mark and stamped it on the front of the striped patterned paper. I embossed it in clear powder and cut it out once it had cooled off. I also cut a stripe of another patterned paper by the same company with the same colours. Both of these papers have been sitting in my space waiting for me since about November. I added some Prima flowers to the centre of the flower.... another thing I don't use much. I put everything together and decided it needed something so I stamped the word Dream (PSX) in white craft ink and embossed it with white powder (I don't use white powder much).

Et voila.... the card for today!
