Good news....Bad news...:-)

Good Morning!! First for the bad news....I am having trouble loading my tutorial to my PC :-( My dear hubby had to work last night, so he supposed to help me tonight. So (crossing fingers), I am hoping to post it in the morning. Okay now for the good news!! I have been accepted to join the Great Swaps Girls!! I am so thrilled to be a part of this group!! All of the ladies are so awesome and talented!! Yeah!! You can't tell I am excited can you?? LOL

Okay, for today's card....I didn't realize it until I uploaded the card this morning, but it reminds me of my card from yesterday! Hhmmm....sorry about that! I do LOVE how the flowers turned out though....they remind me of magnolias! I stamped the flower on white confetti paper and then sponged sahara sand around the edges and a dab in the middle. I really LOVE this color combo as well. This is definitely one of my favorite cards I have made with this set. I hope you like it as well!! Have a great day everyone!!

Blessings
Vickie

I have to say, I'm not a fan of the embrace life set but you may have changed my mind. This card is AMAZING!

Love your card! You are brave to have cut the leaves and stems out like that. The end result was certainly worth it though!

If you think this card is pretty on the blog, you should see it in person...it is absolutely striking!

I think it is one of the prettiest cards I have seen.

Keep up the great work Vickie!
