Recollections Flower

Hey... did you all know THE Val from Cal has a blog now? Well, SHE DOES! I love that girl, and I check out her blog daily. Well, last night she posted this cool site she visits to get layout ideas. WOW! Totally a perfect place for inspiration. Check it out, CPS. So, this is where I got the layout for this card. I wanted to use my Au Chocolate paper, but I can't find it. I know have another pack here somewhere. LOL. So, this was out, and this is what I used. I really like this layout!

The flower is a new flower die for the Cuttlebug. I LOVE it!! I first ran it through with the thin weight coasters, then did the same with the paper and chocolate chip card stock, glued them together. The Thinking of you is from the hostess set Warmest Regards by Stampin'Up! I stamped it in craft Bravo Burgundy, then used the large oval punch to punch it out. Punched out another large oval shape with chocolate chip card stock, then cut it in half and positioned each piece so that it was showing on the top and bottom of the sentiment. Added some antique brads from the Hodgepodge kit and I have a card ready for the mail. I'm going to use this layout more! Thanks Val... for that awesome link!!!

Here is the complete recipe:

Stamps: Warmest Regards
Card stock: Chocolate Chip, Recollections Designer Series Paper
Ink: Bravo Burgundy Craft
Other: Large Oval Punch, Hodge Podge Hardware, Organdy Ribbon

Have a great day!! I'm off to the grocery store... YICK! I hate grocery shopping. But hey.. at least the rain stopped. :)

I love that site! Great card girly. I just ordered my birthday gift from EP today (YOUR flower set was in and I snagged the last one. LOL). Now you make me want those dies. Dagnabit. Those will have to wait until next time!

Looks the mix of papers, that die-cut flower and the layout. P.S. If you are looking for sketch designs, visit my blog here (I am layout-challenged so I collect them!):

Love that card! But it made me go to Michaels and buy that CB die...*sigh*. That's ok, we like eating beans and rice!
