Morning everyone, wow 2 days without rain!! Is this a record?:) Anyway back to crafty things and the LIM challenge this week is a ONE LAYER one and Chrissie and Mandi want us to use FLOURISHES. I had a couple of ideas which turned out to be total rubbish and eventually came up with this which I'm reasonably happy with but it's not a wow moment:)


Recipe
Stamps are SU Everything Eleanor
Sentiment Darkroom Door
Inks: Baja Breeze, Marina Mist & Pretty in Pink
Liquid Pearls

Thanks for taking the time to visit me and please leave a comment so that I can visit you:)

A really beautiful well proportioned card Val.

I love the flourish stamps you used and the liquid pearls give such a pretty look to your flower. Perfect for the challenge at LIM.
You asked how l designed my flowers. I use a plain round rolled flower and then spend ages tweaking it in Silhouette Studio. I still need to tweak it a bit more though xx

Valerie, we're has almost 16 inches of rain in about 36 hours! Lots of flooding in downtown Pensacola. Thankfully, we live at a more elevated level and haven't have any flooding here...but the road to our house from one direction has been closed due to the flooding. It always floods there as the little creek just can't move the water fast enough. LOVE your card...especially all the little pearls you've added. You asked if I was making a wedding album for my granddaughter. I'll be scrapping lots of the wedding photos I took, but I rarely make a special album for anyone. I figure my children/grandchildren can fight over my scrapbooks long after I'm gone! :)

Hi Valerie, Your card's gorgeous! It's shabby chic and I love it!!I'm with you on penquins, they are so funny. I was lucky enough to actually visit the colony on Philip Island a few years ago, they have stands built to house the spectators and you walk through the nesting grounds to get to the beach where the little fat penguins climb out of the sea with their full bellies. One little guy had eaten so much he couldn't get out of the surf, it was hilarious. What you don't see on TV is the dreadful smell LOL Have a great week my friend, hugs Gay xxx
