Something Splendid

Hello there!!!

Its back to school weekend here, that means school shopping. It was really painless and quick YEAH! I only shopped with one son, the other son learned that you don't get new clothes to start college. Let me tell you he has plenty, but little brother has outgrown most of what he has, shoes, and most of his pants. Kam has hit a serious growth spurt his shoe size is now a 11 and he is taller than me and his big brother (which he loves to point out, often). Tomorrow marks the first day of school for my youngest who will officially be a SENIOR!! That's right I am on the last one here people and I cant tell you how excited I am. I would say that's something splendid! This also means back to work for me, that brings a new adventure in itself as I am assigned a new student to work with exclusively.

Check out the simple beauty of a card I have today.

I used the August stamp of the month, which I stamped on a stitched piece of colonial white cardstock, layered on a piece of Tulip cardstock, layered on a pice of Sweet Leaf cardstock and finally layered on a Chocolate card base. I stamped the sentiment below the flower,adding two pieces of red ribbon, I didnt think it needed much more than that.

Congrats on getting ready for BTS!

Your card is great - although I have to tell you, I had to open it in photoshop and modify the gamma setting .6 in order to actually see the ribbons.

The ribbons are way cute! AND you stitched all around the card, too.
Nice work!

Something Splendid indeed Jamia! This card is adorable and you're right, it has just the perfect amount of embellishment as to not take away from that gorgeous floral image!
