Greeting Card Charm

Yesterday I played with the new Greeting Card Kids set. The images are so charming.  Here's what I came up with:

The main images were watercolored.  The decorative papers are from Greenhouse Gala.  If you look close, you'll see the Hydrangea image from the Because I Care set stamped in pink on the pink card stock.

Finished off with some satin olive ribbion, new lace ribbon and some stitching. 

A bit of ivory and satin ribbon flowers to add a girly feel to the card.  The main ivory ribbon flower I created months ago (had it sitting on the side for future use). The pink was a last minute addition.  Two 4" strips of pink ribbon stitched along the side, pullied a little to create the ruffle and walla!  

If you really want to go crazy with ribbon flowers, do what I did and check out a ribbon art book from the library.  LOTS of ideas for using ribbon in your art.

Added an additional vintage feel by including the vintage brad in the center.

Here's what the entire set looks like.  Darling, darling.

Two more days till the WEEKEND.  WOOT!

This is just charming. I love the soft pink, green and yellow together, and the pale wash of watercolors is the perfect touch!
