Today’s card is a CASE of a card I received in a swap with other PALs at OnStage in  Charlotte.  Unfortunately the maker’s card was not in the envelope, so I do not know who to give credit to for this cute card.

Flowering Desert, 148700

I gave the cactus a little flower on it’s head and added a touch of bling.  Looking at it now though, it almost looks like a much too small little hat!!  LOL!!  I am going to stick with it being a flower.

The background is the Subtle Embossing Folder which gives just enough texture without overdoing it.  I love the embossing folder for a variety of reasons.  The cactus , flowers, grass are a variety of greens and Mango Melody.

I added the ribbon in Calypso Coral with the layered sentiment for some depth.  The sentiment received a flower and bling to match the cactus.  This was a fun card to make!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I really like this stamp set and think it was under showcased.  It has the potential for some really sweet cards.  Unfortunately it is on the retiring list.
