My Mind's Eye Style by Marge

This is the first card I've made using the Lush line of designer paper in blue by My Mind's Eye -- it's totally "luscious"! :~) My 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card uses three of the gorgeous patterned papers from this line, as well as a brad and velvet scalloped ribbon.

Cream CS from my stash is first covered with Blue Diamonds double-sided DP and then topped in the center with velvet Polka Dot DP. Two large Prima Flowers at the top left are embellished with a large My Mind's Eye "Lush" brad and sit atop my Celebrate sentiment.

Across the bottom I cut the reverse side of the Blue Damask DP with the scalloped QuicKutz/Lifestyle Crafts Journaling Die (#REV-0226-D), tucked it underneath cream lace from my stash, then topped with MME's velvet scalloped ribbon and finished at the right side with another Prima Flower. All DPs and flowers were antiqued with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I colored my clear flower-shaped stick pin (Making Memories) with Copic BG11, added beads and stuck it through my ribbon and flower. Finally, a pearl from my stash was threaded with embroidery floss for stamens and attached with a glue dot to complete my card.
