What's Next?

Hello everyone,  I have been given a new assignment to work on, but it is for shows that are not until mid June.  That does sound like a lot of time but I do have a holiday between now and then so I do need to get cracking with it.  Unfortunately, I can't show any of these samples for a while, so I have been going through some of my sample pics and found some that haven't made it onto blogland yet.  This one is one of my favourites.  It was done using some of Sam Poole's bew wedding stamps.  I am supposed to do a wedding show sometime in the near future, but the date has not been set as of yet.  So I guess that means that I can show a few sneaking peeks in the meantime.  I scored the card at the top every half inch and then brought it down to a diagonal line where I added my handmade roses (using the stamps from the Button Florals).  It is difficult to see but they are covered in Diamond Stickles to give them a lovely shimmer.  I added some ribbon and pearls and finished it with a text tag stamped with a sentiment from the set.  I hope you like it!  All for now, Sue x

This is a card that any bride would love to receive. It has an unstated elegance about it and the flowers are lovely. Love the simplicity of scoring the background paper.

others have already said this but it really is a stunningly elegant card, and your explanation of how you made it even makes me think I could do something using the same techniques.
