yup, i found a whole entire sheet of "marzipan" paper, from possibly my all-time favorite classic basic grey line, lollipop shoppe! so of course i had to celebrate by cutting right into that sucker and liberating (and outlining) one of the gorgeous blooms. actually, i liberated a couple of them, but when i started composing the card, it turned out that the best fit --and most dramatic impact-- was to use just one. so i did. the stripey background paper is from authentique's year-or-two-ago "cuddle girl" collection, which always felt a bit like it was inspired by classic bg to me. the ledger and the gorgeous wallpaper-ish background pattern are both from the much too short-lived collage press; the green gingham diecut frame was a scrap of lilybee and the sentiment sticker is from crate paper's "pretty party" collection. so you can see i've used ALL stash, and most of it of an impressive vintage lol. the only new things on this card are the hero arts variegated sequins. because apparently... i'm in a sequin phase.
why not hop over to SOS and see what kind of gorgeous phase my design team sisters are in. then start making plans for linking up your own flowery masterpiece with us this fortnight! ♥
*it rained so much over the weekend, at one point my husband SWORE he could actually hear the grass growing, lol! :)
