Just Saying Hello...

Happy Friday, everyone! I must admit, I'm loving crafting in my new workroom setup.  I'm not sure why, but I'm able to work in a much more organized manner workspace isn't a total mess after a project is finished. I can't help but wonder if it's because the organization is all "new"...and if, when the novelty wears off,  I'll be back to having a "white tornado mess" again...I hope not.  I hope it's because I finally figured out how to organize according to my work habits...LOL

I'm ending the week with a little card in soft, springtime colors. It was fun combining papers from two manufacturers and finding that they complemented each other so well...

I had fun with this floral cluster...lots of white and coral flowers, accented with soft green branch punches, scattered pearls, pieces of cardstock flourish diecuts...all sitting on some scrunched cheesecloth and a large Prima mulberry paper flower coated with Polar White Flower Soft that lightened the colors while adding dimension...

The scalloped layers of patterned papers were accented with edges dry-brushed with white acrylic paint...scalloped lace with pearls accents them all...

Patterned papers:   Prima Divine collection (coral honeycomb & lined ruler print);  
Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary collection (coral dot & black floral)
Lace:       Die:   Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork      
Flowers:   Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima       Pearls:   Recollections
Punches:   Martha Stewart Medium Branch;  Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment       Sentiment stamps:   Hero Arts

Thanks so much for visiting today...I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
