Lacy Label Card With Bridal Flowers

Michael's sells a clear canister of different colors of flowers in their bridal section.  I picked up a canister of white (and wish I'd bought 2 or 3!) and from time to time I take them out and color them with my markers for a particular project.

Lacy Labels cartridge was used to cut the scalloped ovals.  The paper I used is Chloe's Closet from Making Memories.  The sentiment is a SU stamp done in chocolate chip ink.  I colored the white flowers gold and green using Promarkers.  Then I added a little bit of doodling and the card was finished.

Wow Linda, I am in love with this card! I love the blues, the paper and the flowers are so pretty! I think I will have to look for those flowers! LOL Beautiful card my friend!

No Char, the flowers are sort of iridescent paper to start out with. I love keeping these on hand because I can match them to all the SU colors of paper with their markers.

Blue and white my favorite with a cheery touch of yellow. Love all the patterns and great idea about coloring the flowers with your markers.

Linda, pretty card. I love the paper you chose, the different patterns in blue and the music notes. Ive seen these flowers but didn't know you could color them.

What a pretty card! I love the colors. I almost bought those flowers once and never even thought about coloring them. May have to get them now.

Very pretty! Thanks for the idea of using the bridal flowers!!! I'll have to get some the next time I have a coupon burning a hole in my pocket.

Love the lacy labels cart, but I don't have it yet. I think I may wait to get the elegent edges, but I'm still deciding...

Love the colors on the card!

Reading about your "adventures" with the flowers AND the great things you do with Cards for Soldiers influenced me to gift you last year.

I have looked at buying those flowers soooo many times. Great idea on just coloring them to match your papers. Cute card.
