Glossy Posies

I made it to the CK Scrapbook convention at Valley Forge yesterday and picked up a few new goodies, so you're seeing some of them on this card that I made for 2 challenges over on SCS. This week's QFTD20 is FrancieG, and in tribute to her being chosen our new queen this week, I chose her Showers bring Flowers card to case. The 2nd challenge I entered was the Technique Tuesday TTSC1 to use any of their stamps to make a card. I found this cute Pocket Full of Posies set at their booth yesterday and had to have it! I stamped the flowers and leaves, embossed them, colored with reinkers, cut them out, and finally added Glossy Accents and pearls. I just bought the Spellbinders Labels 10 yesterday too, so this card is pretty much the same design as Francie's card with only a few minor changes. I also got my stampers 10 order last night too, so I'll probably be playing with all these new goodies today instead of doing something sensible:)
On another note..........if you have time, be sure to check out this new blog I just added to my blog list. You won't be disappointed!! Tell her Carol sent ya :)

It is such a shame that we never seem to have enough of these cards on hand! It is so soft and elegant, Carol! Glad you got to Valley Forge and found some goodies. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
