Fabulous Flowers with Cute & Curly...again

Happy Saturday! I have to hurry and finish getting ready for the crop tonight, but wanted to make a post before I go! This is another simple dimple scrap card from the other night...I think it's the last of the Fabulous Flowers pieces I had stamped and laying around, lol! (See it here in the mess!) The piece of patterned paper from Summer Picnic happened to be just that size, so I made it work. It was kind of blah until I added the black. I forget about adding black sometimes, and it really can make things pop.

I was trying to come up with five swap card designs today that I can work on mass producing tonight. I finally managed to "settle" on three. Why does it feel like so much more pressure when you're designing for a swap, vs. just fun for yourself? Anyway, I used Grand Soiree, Party Hearty, and Say It with Scallops, because those three swaps are due on the 20th. I'm dying to use Mr. Twigster, but he's not due until the 30th. Maybe I'll get to him tomorrow...

Hope your Saturday is going great! Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is great like always Angie. I agree with the previous post, I like the ribbon knot in the flower, nice touch!

The black really did make the card pop and love that fabulous flower with the ribbon knot too!! How funny that we both have swaps with five different designs - it is quite a challenging thing I agree! LOL!

You're so right about the black ... and the knotted ribbon center totally changes the look of that big bloom ... wonderful card.

This fabulous flower is one of my all time favorites. I love the ribbon tied in the middle of it and the colors.

I can't wait to see your Mr. Twigster cards. He's arriving at my house Wednesday and I can't wait to play!
