one of my obstacles to using these gorgeous metal discs was that they somehow seemed too elegant to stick in the middle of a plain flat floral; whereas the oversized, fancier flowers already have their own centers. i resolved this by carefully removing the top layer of this gorgeous green prima bloom (which i saved for next time) and replacing it with the pretty filigree.
dang, that was EASY... why didn't i think of it sooner?! but then, if i had, i wouldn't have thought of it just in time to make a very kerrie-centric card for my cousin, so i've decided just to be happy right now! :)
a huge help in getting the placement and shabby chic vibe of this card the way i wanted it was the current cardabilities sketch (#93) with which i am *MOST* enamoured. can ya blame me? just look at that thing:
next up i bet you're as excited as i am to check out the amazing creations of my fellow SOS dt-members, so let's hop on over, darlings! ♥
