Very Dimensional Card

I placed my first order with My Favorite Things this week and got these cute rolled up flowers and the monarch border, and Vertical greetings stamps and dies.  I had so much fun.  I made many more flowers in these colors than I used.  I loved it that I used up quite a bit of my stash, but added some new embellishments to my stash.

Our Creative Corner has a challenge for the Color Trifecta, yellow, kraft and ivory.
sketch inspiration

I used the sketch from iSpy Sketches 14

I was able to use all my new stuff on this one card.  I used yellow mulberry paper.  This scrap was a little thicker than some mulberry that I had in other colors.  I just found a little scrap, enough for the border and the flowers and it was gone.  Whoop!  For added accent I put those adorable pearls.  I am almost done with those.  And I am going to say right now, that I need to get more of those.  See, I used the word NEED not want.  I think it adds additional depth and texture to cards.
