Just For You- SU only card

Hi guys! We made it to the weekend! My endless week of doctor's appointments, root canals, and school obligations is OVER. I am looking forward to spending the weekend resting and playing in my scramp room. Today's card is perfect to kick this weekend off too since we are expecting warm, springish weather. I think a few spring flowers are just what I need! Take a look...
And since I think it is easier to picture a project online when you can gain a little depth perception...
This card uses my new favorite paper pack, the Springtime Vintage DSP, and one of my favorite color combos, green and blue. The flower images are from the new SAB set called Sweet Summer. I colored them with my blender pens and reinkers which is still very difficult with my hand in a brace. The sentiment I chose to use is from the Level 1 Hostess set called Afterthoughts.

I wanted to showcase the gorgeous print paper as much as the images so I wanted an arrangement that gave me both. I finally decided on the Sizzix Oval Scallop Frame die cut with my Big Shot machine. For embellishment I added a length of Very Vanilla 5/8" grosgrain ribbon along with a couple Certainly Celery Designer buttons (included in the Subtles assortment.) Even though the assortments of buttons and ribbon color choices don't include all 45 colors, the selections are carefully chosen to give you the most versatile colors in the palette. The leaves were colored with Old Olive but they harmonize well with Celery buttons. You get tons of combinations for your projects this way!

I think that about sums it up for today. I have several other cards made ahead so check back for lots of fresh ideas to come. Have a great weekend!
