Full of Life

It's so exciting when a blogging friend gets recognition...it's like a little party in cyberspace:) My good friend, LeAnne Pugliese, is the Featured Stamper #175 over at Splitcoaststampers this week! What a beautiful gallery LeAnne has with impeccable and clean layouts with amazing use of color and techniques.

I chose this card of LeAnne's to case and wanted to maintain the layout and that fab poofy flower:) The colors of my card were inspired by the Inspiration Challenge #236: Roses and Teacups, over at Splitcoaststampers this week, too. How pretty is this little fabric-covered teapot? So darling:)

I used a decor stencil to create a background image on the card front using Rose Red ink and a sponge dauber. After stamping the sentiment, adding a scallop trim and adhering the gathered ribbon, I attached the poofy flower with a Pretty in Pink Corduroy Brad.
