Some buttons, a prima and a glittered heart... happy sigh

Hi everyone!  While I was cruisin' around my Craft Warehouse the other day, I literally stopped in my tracks at the GORGEOUS Prima flowers (Camelot Roses Gwenlyn)!  Wha...?!?  SOOO pretty!

These inspired me to pull out my Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris, that I got from the Stamp Simply Store.  Sharon is out of this paper now, but she has some wonderful Graphic 45 papers that have the same vintage-y feel!

My card follows Jen's Sketch For You to Try.  I loved that 3rd panel on the sketch, I just HAD to use some of the fabulous chocolate Velvet ribbon that I have been hoarding.  It was almost painful to cut into that loveliness!!  Even MORE so because I messed up my first piece -  SOB!  The glittered chipboard heart is by Melissa Frances and the wonderful sentiment is from Verve's So Happy set - this set is an oldie, but goodie!!

Well, that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!!
