Flourish Thinlits (REDO)

Hello everyone! Hoping all is well with you. Yesterday was a really tough day for me...my son's roommate was killed in a car wreck on Monday and I found out early yesterday. I couldn't stop crying, let alone blog...but I am here today!


Do you remember this card from a couple of weeks ago...it was for a Facebook Hop back on March 7th. I really liked it, but I felt it just needed something more...
...so I decided to re-create it!  The only thing I did differently was dry emboss the Old Olive piece of cardstock with the Elegant Dots embossing folder. Isn't it amazing how one little change can make all the difference!  

My card base is 4 1/4" X 11".  My first layer is Old Olive and measures 4 1/8" X 5 3/8". The next layer is Whisper White and measures 4" X 5 1/4". I used the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits to cut an oval out of the Whisper White cardstock.  Notice that it isn't centered. I placed it more toward the top so I would have room for a sentiment at the bottom. I also changed the sentiment which is from the So In Love stamp set.  I attached the oval cut out with Dimensionals to give the card depth. I used the Flourish Thinlits to cut the BEAUTIFUL floral flourish out in Whisper White card stock. I attached the flourish with Multipurpose glue.  I added several Basic Pearls (instead of Rhinestones) to give it just a bit of ELEGANCE.

I really love how this card turned out...it's much better than the original! It's ALWAYS a work in progress...ALWAYS ways to improve!

Hey...thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY! Take time to tell those you love that you love them today!!!
