I had a little time to play in my scrap room and I stamped and coloured some images a while ago. They have been sitting at the side of my desk for a quite some time. Yesterday, I saw a gorgeous card that piqued my interest and it is the inspiration for this card. That card can be found at Suzanne Reynold's blog here. I loved the idea of the doily behind the flower. She is anxious to see what I did with her idea...
The bright pink, shiny Origami paper is something I picked up several years ago at a scrapbook store... don't even remember where it was located. I bought a LOT of it in various colours and haven't done anything with any of it! It was difficult to cut using the Cricut as it had to be on a very light setting since the paper is very thin. I used part of it to mimic a ribbon at the bottom as well. The little gems are retired jewels from Close To My Heart.
This is the inside of the card - just enough room to write a message to the recipient.
