Simple, Easy....but So Lovely!

I have a few friends who have April birthdays......and this was the card I made for most of them. It is also one of the M&T cards from my last workshop.....AND best of all, this set is ON SALE!!! But only for a few more days. Fifth Avenue Floral is 20% off, but only until April don't miss your chance to purchase this beautiful set and save money!!
If you've looked around the internet, blog hopped, or googled this set, you will have seen so many, many lovely ideas....all made with this wonderful, elegant set. For this card, I simplified things...remember, some of the ladies at my last workshop were "stamping virgins!" So, the flowers were simply stamped on the lower corner of this card. But to "spice things up," and because glitter ALWAYS makes things looks so much better, we outlined the petals of the rose with 2-way glue and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. We also glittered the stamen of the lily and the centers of the other 2 flowers.....I have no idea what type they are, but they are pretty, aren't they?!!
As you can see, the greeting uses a set from the soon-to-retire Occasions Mini, Whimsical Sayings....unless, of course, it is included in the upcoming catalog due out in July. Maybe we'll get lucky!! Buy why take the chance...order yours (and anything else you just have to have) from the mini as well!
So, there, you have it....a quick and easy card. Oh!...I should tell you that it was very much inspired by a card in this post here. While you are there, be sure to take a look around. I adore so many of the layouts and cards are sure to enjoy your visit!
As always, thanks for stopping by and visiting today!!
