Kharmagirl Rocks!!

My SCS friend Jodi, aka Kharmagirl sent me this fabulous card for starting my new blog!! What a surprise!!! It is beautiful Jodi, and you are the sweetest for sending it!! I loved it so much that I used it for the inspiration for my Ways to Use It challenge today for SCS!! I loved the colors that she used, so I decided to use them on my card for today. I started with a piece of 5 1/4square cardstock in Purely Pomegranate(by far and away my favorite of the in colors!!). I then took a piece of Whisper White and sponged PP ink on the edges. I cut a 2in. strip of this yummy paper from the Bali Breeze collection and matted it on PP. I then tied a piece of this yummy white swirly ribbon that I got from Jodi in my elf package. I really wanted to try to do another of those Dahlia fold cards, so I used the Bali Breeze paper to make one. I punched my circles out with the 1 3/8" punch. I put an antique copper brad in the middle, and I don't know if you can see it, but the brad has polka dots too!! I glued the flower down on Whisper White, then Bali Breeze, then PP, and sponged the edges. I love how Faith, aka Markie's Mom always puts here sentiment on top of the hardware, so I have started doing that too. I think that about does it. This card is going to another one of my SCS friends, who had to have emergency surgery this week, although I am still waiting to find out what the heck happened!! Thanks again to you Jodi, you really do rock!! Hugs, and have a great day!!
