Happy Sunday

Hi Crafters!
Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.  The weather here is getting colder but we are supposed to get temps in the 70's the end of the week, Yay!  I don't know about you but, I much prefer warmer weather like in the 80's or above.  I know, I'm not your typical Midwesterner (I am actually a Floridian even though I have lived most of my life in the Midwest).  My husband is loving it, the Yank!

On with today's post.

I used the following companies products:

Stampin' Up! (card stock)
Prima (tags and paper)
Spotted Canary (pearls)
My Favorite Things (stamps & Die-namics)

I felt the need to get my fingers dirty with card.  I inked all the edges of card stock, tags, and paper.  I used a Die-namics die to make the 3 flowers.  I chose to ink the lace with my sponge dauber instead of putting it in a baggie with my refill ink.  This was much less messy and I could work with it right away.  Plus, I didn't want a really saturated color, just a soft tint.  That worked pretty well.  The flowers seemed a little heavy so I popped up the image with some foam tape to balance everything out.

I entered this card in the following challenges:
