Born to Stand Out

It's one of those weeks where my workspace gets buried, as my mind goes off creating in a few directions.  Not having cleaned up yet, I decided to use some of the Basic Grey papers from yesterday's post.  Inspired by the MoJo Monday Sketch 189, I moved and omitted a few things and edged up with this card.

I used the color palette from the lovely pattern piece, adding Bermuda Bay as my base card and some Recollections Mulberry Flowers.  The fab vintage image is Daisy from the Artistic Outpost Gatsby plate, the sentiment can be found on the Think and Wonder plate.  The edges are sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink, I also added some Tattered Rose DI to Daisy.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Gatsby, Think and Wonder
Card Stock - Vanilla, Chocolate, Bermuda Bay, Ranger Distress Ink Pumice Stone, Tattered Rose
Other - Spellbinders Circle Dies, Big Shot, Prima Flourish, Recollections Mulberry Flowers, Glue Dots, Scallop Punch, Basic Grey Sweet Threads, Sponge Dauber, Craft Sheet

Hi Lisa~

What a beautiful and colorful card! I love the hint of Tattered Rose Distress Ink on Daisy herself!
I love the flourish you created! The flowers the pearls, and I think I see rhinestones, too. It is very pretty...especially with the color of the dp coming through from behind! I love the layout!

He IS Able,
