You Make My World That Much Brighter...

Happy Monday!  I have a short and sweet post with a flowery friendship card to start the new week.

The pastel patterned papers get an extra added punch with the use of the dark purple cardstock mats and a few dark purple roses among the pale yellow and pink - the large purple rose is made using Spellbinders' Rose Creations dies...

I started embellishing a Maya Road heart stickpin, but once I finished, I decided I wanted a second pin to offset it, so I added another Maya Road pin, this time the one with three graduated pearls...

And a couple closeups of the small flower clusters surrounding the large rose...

Patterned papers:   My Minds Eye Miss Caroline/Dolled Up collection (stripe);  
Fiddlesticks collection (floral & yellow dot)
Dies:   Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork;   Spellbinders Rose Creations;   My Favorite Things Royal Leaves
Punch:   Martha Stewart Medium Branch          Small flowers:   Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls:   Recollections          Lace:   local craft store          Maya Road stick pins

Thanks for visiting today...I hope your week is starting with a smile!
