Specialty Bella

Today's challenge was to use specialty paper. Ive had this paper in a kit for a while now and always wanted to use it on something elegant. Well I finally got it out today and said it would be pretty with Bella Blossoms. The flower is raised on dimensionals twice and the leaves are also raised. The last raised flower is sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Bella Blossoms
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Unknown Specialty Paper
Ink: Same
Accessories: Button Bouquet, Ribbon, Oval Punch, Dazzling Diamonds

Good Times Clipboard

Here is a clipboard I bought from Staples. I decorated it using SU!'s Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. The "good times" is a rub on from last years catty. The heart was a piece of chipboard I had and I used a dauber and Riding Hood Red Ink to color over it.
