Victoria Gardens 6x6 pad from Echo Park and I thought I'd pair it up with the new Bugabee set from Taylored Expressions. The Bugabee set is a cute and fun set and I thought pairing it up with something as elegant as Victoria Gardens would give it a different look! I do like the end result. I think the card still looks elegant even though I used a "non-elegant" stamp set.
Bugabee Bug Dies to die cut the ladybug out of the patterned papers. The flower was created using the Bugabee Flower Dies. I used the Labels 10 Nestabilities on the rose patterned paper and sponged around the edges. I also used Maroon Pearls to embellish. The sentiment was stamped in white craft ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I don't know how well it shows up in the picture, but I used the Illuminate Glitter Top Coat Smooch on the ladybug and flower. It gives them a great little shimmer!
Well, school starts tomorrow! We've got lots of little last minute preparations to make, but the girls are very excited! Arwen will be starting Kindergarten, so I'm interested to see what she'll think of being in school ALL day! :) Savannah's beginning 2nd grade, so she's used to the long days. It will definitely be a little more quiet in the house tomorrow. . .and I think I can get used to that! ;) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
