Elegant Floral Thanks

Last weekend, I organized all my pattern paper and cardstock, so I would know what I have.  I kept the most recent Level 2 packs together; otherwise, I broke them up and put the cardstock with my bulk cardstock.  I am glad I did this, because I tend to forget what paper I have in "my stash".  Since I found some past pattern paper (say thay three times fast), I decided to use Elegant Floral Level 2 and the coordinating stamp set for today's card.  Both the paper and the stamp set are retired.  You can make this card with any flowered paper and stamp set you own.

I used Lori's sketch this week at Paper Craft Planet's weekly sketch challenge.  Click here to see the gallery for inspiration to play along.  Once you upload your card to your photos, tag it with sk030709, so Lori can add it to the gallery.

All the products I used for this card are Close To My Heart except the punches and bling.  It is so nice to have everything match.  I didn't have cranberry organdy ribbon, so I used ivory organdy ribbon over holiday red to tone it down.  This way I could use red, but not have it too bright for the color scheme.

You know I love pop dots!

What do you think of my pictures?  I hope you like them.  I don't have to wait for the sun or clean windows anymore.  The sun would come sooner than the clean windows.  You know my motto..."A clean house is a sign of a lazy stamper."  LOL!  I purchased the light box on Ebay.  I use my Ott Lite to get true colors and the light box came with four backgrounds.  It is so cool!

Supplies used: Paper - Elegant Floral Level 2; Stamp sets - Elegant Floral, For Every Occassion; Ink - cranberry, garden green; Accessories - red bling (unknown), ivory and holiday red organdy ribbon; Tools - Flourish and 1 3/4" punches (EK Success), 2" punch (Fiskars), small and large oval punches (SU)

Happy Stamping!

Its funny you should say that about the pictures. I just got one off of ebay too. I am picture taking challenged.

I love the card and the idea about how you organized your paper and cardstock.

Great idea with the paper packs, Kim. I think I'll make that my project for the weekend.

VERY pretty card...love the flourish and that touch of bling.

Good idea for the paper...I pulled out my Level 2 cardstock a long time ago and had enough of some colors to replenish the cardstock stash. LOL

Your card is a beauty.

Congrats on the light box. If I had a place to set mine out, I'd use it more...Your pics look terrific!
