Flowers and Crystals

Flowers and crystals...that kind of sums up the cards I've made in the past week. I'm just addicted to these little Zva flowers and I love pairing them with the crystals. It's all about the bling!

This first card is my card for 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I rotated the sketch. The paper is Basic Grey and the trim is Making Memories. I used a Martha Stewart bird and creted the scallop around him using Jenni Bowlin crepe oaoer ribbon which I pleated and stitched.




This next card is for Dawn's challenge. Look at these YUMMY colors!!


Here's my take on the challenge. I finally broke out my PTI Guidleines 2 set and used Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet and Dark Chocolate over Vintage Cream cardstock. It was soooo much fun to create the background paper. Can't wait to do more. I added the ribbon and sentiment (both PTI) then I added the Zva flowers (told you I love them) and Zva crystals.





So, that's it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day. ;)
