Stampin' Up! co-ordinates in a BIG way!

One of the great things about SU! is that everything co-ordinates, the card stock, the ink, the ribbons, the brads, the buttons, the eyelets & even the designer papers. So it makes it really easy for those of us that aren't as artistic as others to make an awesome card really quickly.

This is from one who had to think & prepare for my downline training last night after Mother's day celebrations with the family. The techniques we were looking at tonight were water colouring, embossing & setting an eyelet (the old way & the new way with the Cropodile). I wanted a card that covered the lot, so designer paper to the rescue!

I used the very lovely Petals & Paisleys DP. One of it's flowers reminded me of a flower from the retired In Full Bloom set.
