I have two cards for you two today that are the same but different. I stamped the gorgeous carnations a few times in the bottom right corner and then again in the top left. I added some distress ink in the background along with perfect pearls to add some interest. 


For the first card I kept the background simple. I used three shades of green to add some depth to the background. Some perfect pearls mixed with water adds the perfect amount of shine. 


I had a bit more fun with the colors in my second background. I love that the mix of alcohol markers and distress inks add such depth to the card. 


Which one is your favorite? The more simple or all the colors? :) 

You're in for a real treat on the next stop. You're heading to see one of my favorite crafters Svitlana Shayevich

Thanks for stopping by!

  53. In some cases flowers may have a more grim representation such as calla lilies at a funeral. Recently evidence of flowers dating back to the prehistoric period have been discovered through 'Flower Fossils'. flowers sutherland shire
