This simple card is on a 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock base.  A piece of pink patterned cardstock from "who knows where" ~ OLD! ~ was cut at 3x4 and a piece of Archivers pink cardstock was cut to 2 1/2x4.  Michaels satin ribbon was adhered at the seam.  PTI #8 Fillable Frame was used to cut white cardstock and the matching stamp was used as well.  The focal part of this card is the flower.  Similar flowers made from cardstock are called Lollipop flowers. I am not sure if that is applicable to this one, but.... I buy the petals meant for weddings at Michaels, when they are on clearance.  I usually pay $2 for a box.  There are usually 2 or 3 shades of a color and also some tulle petals as well.  I cut them out in concentric circles, 5-7 of them.  I layer the satin and usually 2 tulle ones and sew them together with a crystal bead.  A stick pin was made using a corsage pin and pearls.  I have a package of glass pearls from WalMart but I also look for them at Hobby Lobby.  I like 8mm but I use all of the sizes.  The white ones can be colored with sharpies, too!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
