A late bloomer

I enjoy reading headlines...all kinds. I love the play on words, the puns (intended or not), the bon mots, even the pundits themselves (sometimes). I have even started reading the Op Ed pages of my local paper! Go figure. I'm not a political zealot, but you have to agree there's a lot of fodder out there for really funny headlines!!

Anyway, today's title comes about because fall is officially here and I'm not ready for it!! So, I was cruizin' Stampin' Up's website for a flower card I could make and this is the result. I must give a shout out to Cam Cao for her original idea. Although I changed some of my card stock and inks used, I still used her basic design. I really like this card. I just wish my scanner gave true colors because this picture looks like I used a lot of grays when in fact I used greens and oranges!! Grrrrrr!! The recipe follows.

Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful Stamp Set
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, watercolor paper (unknown source), Old Olive Patterns (Patterns Pack III, Hostess item)
Inks: Stazon Jet Black, SU Basic Black Classic
Accessories: Tangerine Tango 5/8" sriped ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware Styled Vanilla, Blender Pens, Stampin' Dimensionals, snail adhesive permanent, SU's watercolor pencils.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I like today's card very much. The scanner did change the colors--I thought the background paper was grayish. Interesting topic for a forum. . .humm.

  2. This card is so pretty and I love the colors and layout you used.
