A Quickie Carnation


A card at last! Although I admit I can't take full credit for this one. It was one of the "make" cards on my list for the Mad City Madness Shoebox swap that I attended back in March. Sort of.

I loved the layout on this one, and the striking colors, but I did not at all like the original main image. It was to be one of the silhouette ladies from the set in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog, which sadly, I think are quite unattractive. No offense meant if you like them, but not at all my style. Sooooo...I left off stamping that part at the event and when I got home, I used this gorgeous carnation from my Sitting Pretty set from Firecracker Designs by Pamela.

Much better! ;-)
