Simplicity at my best...

Happy Hump Day everyone!! my apologies for being so MIA... seems i've been getting hit with curve balls left and right and as much as i want to keep up with my blog, sometimes i just can't make or find the time... eek!

i have a few cards to share with you today that i did a while ago but didn't have the chance to share... i found it when i was uploading some pixs... all the cards featured today is from the Tropical Flowers B set from Island Paperie... i'm loving how versatile (color wise) you can be with these flowers if you just use your imagination... however, these fall back towards a more realistic look...
first up is the orchids... again, like one of my previous postings, i went with purple... i tried to go with another color combo but wasn't satisfied with the outcome... aahh! pretty simple card with some DP, swirl embossed CS and sentiment from TGF's Fancy Fleurs set (discontinued)... the 'twine' you see is 2 shades of embroidery floss that i twisted together... easy right?!
this one here i wanted to show you that i added some rhinestones to the mids of the plumerias... i colored it with 2 different shades of copic pinks and used the colorless blender to soften...
the full card... i L.O.V.E this color combo... pink, green and brown... yup! LOVE IT!!! simple creation using swiss dots embossing folder layered with patterned paper... the brown ribbon hides the layered line and some half pearls gives it just a touch of sass! sentiment is from Studio G's cling line.... i felt it fit the image properly... hehehe!
this one i flipped the image up like some of my earlier creations using this plumeria image... using a scrap piece from the card above this one i paired it with with the circles patterned paper and added a strip of swiss dots embossed CS... sentiment is from Stampettes and a hint of bling to complete this...

today's cards may still be at Island Paperie's store front, but it's been a few weeks since i took them there, so i'm not sure it's still available... =D that's a good thing right?!

kay, so i'm hoping i'll have a few more sharings with you this week... it's been super crazy here with a lot of prep work, last minute requests and everything else in between... but i love what i do and will keep on doing it... even if it means i'm still up at 3am... LOL... now i'm guessing that's my cue to go to sleep... hahaha!! Thanks for coming by, cross your fingers i'll be back sooner than later... hehehe! =D
