Pink and Fabulous!

You know how some days you sit down to stamp and nothing comes out right? The mojo seems to have deserted you and the trash can is filling up with your precious card and paper? I have lots of those days and they are very frustrating, but today everything just came together in the best possible way! Before I found unmounted stamps, I spent 5 very happy years as a demo for Stampin' Up. This was one of the very last sets I ordered from them as a demo - I just loved the sentiment! And what could be more fabulous than one of my favorite color combinations - pink and black? I also love polka dot ribbon and sparkle and although you can't see it very well, there is sparkle on every petal of this fabulous flower. The whole card just makes me feel good and I hope that feeling will pass right along when I send it.

That is gorgeous Kay.
I love the flower set, had to end up buying it from the states.
It reminds me of the flowers on the My Minds EYe Bohemia papers.

Hi Kay! Just poppin in from Ocean's 11.... and so glad I did! This card IS fabulous! I love these colors too... and i love polka dot ribbon! So I love it!!! I love when they come together easily... no struggles... it's not only great feeling, but it usually shows in a very pulled together card that everyone loves!

Don't you love those days when it all turns out all right, you had that day when you created this card, so very pretty. I like the colors and the swirls in the background.

You're right - when the mojo works, it WORKS! Fabulous job - I love this sentiment too. I planned on getting it myself, but my mom beat me to it, so now I can just borrow hers! Fab card!
