Embrace Life

TGIF to you!! Yeah! The end of the week is finally here ~ do you just have some weeks like that? They seem to last forever? This week has been one of those weeks for me! I'm looking forward to a few days to just hang around the house, even though I must spend time on getting our tax paperwork ready for our appointment this coming week!!

Here is a card that I demo'd this past week -- I love the way it turned out! Special thanks to SCS'er MCCFipps's for her inspiration on this card - I just love the knots in the middle of each flower!

I chose my color combo from my beloved SU! Color Coach -

For the knots for the middle of the flowers ~ I just took a short piece of ribbon and tied a knot in the middle and then just thread both ends of the ribbon thru the hole that I had punched in the middle of the flower. Then I just secured each end to the back of the flower with some SNAIL adhesive and used two stampin' dimensionals to attach the flower to my green stamped background.

As always, here is the recipe:
Stamp Sets: Embrace Life, Canvas Background
Card Stock: From the Color Coach – Cameo Coral, Certainly Celery, Garden Green, Naturals Ivory
Stampin’ Pads: Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Rose Red
Accessories: Bravo Burgundy Wide 5/8” grosgrain ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, 1/8” Circle Punch, ¼” White Grosgrain Ribbon, ¼” Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, 1/4” Bravo Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon

Have a great weekend!!

~TFL & Enjoy~

I would never have thought of using these colors together. I like those knots, too. Very pretty!
