Unloved Embellishments....

whoever heard of such a thing!!!?? I don't know about you all, but I love all my embellishments, that's why I buy them. "Hoarded" or "can't figure out how to use them" embellishments, I have a TON of those. Why am I babbling about this you ask, well, it's because the limited supplies challenge over on SCS for this week is to use your unloved embellishments. Since we already figured out that I don't have any of those, I used some that I just had to have, but have never used. Do you know that I have 9 packages of dew drops that have not one been put on a card?? Well, you do now!! Since part of the challenge was to put those unloved embellishments on a card with flowers, I decided to use my new Bloomin Beautiful set from the SU Occasions Mini Catalog( I also used Beate's weekend sketch challenge layout). After seeing all of the WONDERFUL creations with this set, I just had to have it!! SU really should consider making all of their stamps pre-cut(makes it so much easier just to get started stamping), at least, I think they should!! This is pretty simple so I won't go into terrible details, but the image is on Very Vanilla and colored with ink pads and my aquapainter. Since I am kind of obsessed with my crystal effects right now, I covered the flowers with it to make them pop. The base is colored with my markers and the whole image was outlined with my Prismacolor Cool Grey marker. I covered the base of the flower pot and the sentiment panel with perfect pearls, which makes it sooooo sparkly. The hardware could technically fall under unused or unloved embellishments since I never(ok, hardly ever) use those little holder thingies(their name escapes me), and I never use this color of hardware. I have a special person I am sending this too, as soon as I can get some stuff together to send with it, she soooo deserves!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
