Loves Me Loves Me Not

After a long summer day with my two crazy kids who wanted to do nothing but fight all day I immediately retreated to my happy place (my scrap room) as soon as they went to bed.

I pulled out some blue & yellow cardstock from the Rich Regals pack I received with my SU! demonstrator kit, and decided to challenge myself to only use those two pieces of paper, and NO RIBBON! Not using ribbon is hard for me cause ribbon makes everything perfect, but I felt like something different, and YES this was challenging for me!

Things were going good with my card until I needed more color, so instead of reaching for another full sheet of paper, I searched my scraps drawer and found this pink to go with the card. I had just enough to make the additional petals and the flower center.

I used the Pick A Petal stamp set along with the coordinating set Stem Sayings. The "picked" petals were adhered with dimentionals to give them a floating look.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your day!

Cute card! Isn't amazing we actually can do something decent without using ribbon!
