First of all, thanks so much for all the kind comments and emails regarding yesterday's post. Y'all are the best! I purged ribbon yesterday, and it felt SO GOOD!
Second, most of the bold brights are going away, and I'm going to enjoy the stash I have for quite a while to come. Also, every time I go to Michael's, I see premade embellishments and think, "Gee, I could make stuff like that with my punches...especially the flowers." So I decided to play with this large flower punch from SU and use my bold brights. For all three cards, I colored large clear gemstones with Bic Mark-Its to match.
I started with passion pink.
Then moved on to yo-yo yellow. I don't know why people hate this color. Used with lots of white, it's really quite cheery. And not sure why the sentiment looks purple. It's really gray.
Finally, lovely lilac.
Curling up the petals of the layerd flowers is easy, but I'm not sure how it will stand up to being mailed. It's one of those tricks that seems really good at first but may not be exactly, you know, practical.
