Lavendar Lockhart Lilacs


Flower Soft is crazy stuff.... seriously. At first I thought it would be super easy to use. Then I made a huge mess. So I asked some friends for advice. After taking their advice to heart ~ ta da.... I really like this card and I really like Flower Soft and Lockhart Stamps both of which arrived at my house via Susana's store. Yea! I love shopping online! The ribbon frame around the card was the technique challenge Monday at Splitcoast. It is such a cool and simple way to add major pizazz to any card. There is glitter on the vase and in the flowers as well as on the sentiment and scallops. It just wasn't in a showoffy ( I think I just made up a word!) mood.

Hi Brandi love the card very effective with the flowersoft and ribbon. Its weird cause we have had flowersoft here in the UK since it first came out ages ago and I have stacks of it but rarely use it, maybe I should make a start lol.
