Fantastic ....... I have to look at those flowers again such a perfect size for that image and I love how it is in the die. Forget the paper ...... I am going to have to break and get that. I love it and it goes in and out in and out of the cart. Now I need to get down to business..... are you selling at the consignment or buying. I need to set one of these up in NC when we get there I have tubs and tubs of clothes for the kids and it is a PIA to sell on ebay. I had been doing business with a place in Brooklyn but they annoy me. You know I am too Polly Anna and that does not work too well here ...... you have to be cutting edge. Maybe they should make a craft :) Are you selling at the craft fair?? They will be lining up for you girl~~

Hey Laurie, I'm a new follower to your blog...love your style! Your card is beautiful...very soothing colors! Great take on the challenge.

Oh, Laurie. Why must you always make me buy things that I see on your blog? My husbands going to make me stop coming here if every time I do, it sends me into a buying spree!! I love it. The paper is great, but that little tree and flowers is genius! I love Stacey's Curtain Call challenges. :)

Kay said...

I love how you put flowers on that little from Beyond Borders- VERY nice!

Lindsay said...

This is so pretty Laurie! I love the LO and that paper is great!

You are so good at making simple look stunning. Those dogwood blooms are pretty and match the PP well, and I love the chocolate panel behind the matstack.

Sounds like you have a fun and busy weekend planned.

Wendy said...

You say super simple, but I say SUPER STUNNING. Love the layout, and fun details.
