Everything's Coming Up Roses!

Ok, this is what happens when you are doing a craft fair and there are NO customers!  There is no scrap of paper that is safe.....even old Idea Books got torn up!  Flowers, flowers, and more flowers (can you tell I'm really into flowers right now! I know its fall not spring...)  I plan to use them on some project I'm putting together later today. 

Stop back tomorrow for pics of finished products and a how to!

I lost count as to how many I made.  Can you tell the ones made from newsprint and old Idea Books?

Fancy Dress Card

Here is a card I made for my niece's birthday last week.  So much fun with our pearls to accessorize with! 

Just using white card stock, the fold is at the top.  The pink part of the dress is from older Close To My Heart paper pack.  I covered a button with the same paper, added pearls for the center and a flower (petals are colored slightly with ink), added black ribbon and pearls for the belt.  Made an envelope to fit it out of a magazine lipstick add and wha-la, a perfect card for a 27 yr young lady!
