Expressions Natural Elements Puttin’ on the Glitz!

A hundred years ago or so, when I was in California…or, wait.  Maybe it was only a couple of months!  Time sure does fly by, yes?  Anyway, while I was in CA, I made a cool little flower embellishment (check out my Tutorials page to see how to make your own customized fancy flower! ), that I fully intended to use on whatever card I was making at the time.  Only, I couldn’t make it work on it for anything.  So, I stuck the little flower into my little bag o’ scraps (perhaps I’ve mentioned that I have both Scots AND pack-rat-itis in my blood?!?) to save for another card.

Fast forward to today.  When I saw the Mojo Monday sketch from which this card share is derived – I saw “flower”.  And then I thought – hey!  I can use the little CA flower.  Here’s the sketch:

I was also still playing with the challenge from our upline to use the color purple in our projects for the week.  And, on Pinterest, I saw a card that paired Wisteria Wonder with the new Mint Macaron, and I’d loved that combo.  So I combined the three ideas (if you’re counting that’s the Mojo Monday sketch, the purple challenge, and the Pinterest idea) and came up with this card.  Take a look-see:

Farmer’s Market DSP Makes a Cool Country-Vibe Card!

One of the cool things about doing the catalog shares these past few weeks, was that it gave me the excuse to buy enough of each of the new items to ensure that I had a bit of a stash, too! 😉  I’m having a lot of fun playing with the new papers and trying out some of the new ribbons and embellishments as well.  Well, this week, my upline challenged us to make projects using the color purple.  I sorted thru all my new paper-toys, and stumbled onto the Farmer’s Market DSP.  While some of the designs are a bit head-scratchery (“How in the world do I incorporate artichokes and lettuce into a card?” Any ideas out there?!?), there are many that are really awesome.  I picked a few of those for today’s card (and got a purple challenge card in the bargain!).  Take a look-see:
