Simple Flower

  Today's card is using the Simple Flower Sizzix Embosslits and Sizzlits Little Leaves.  I am using Cameo Coral with Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper.   It turned out a lot better than I thought it would.  Cameo Coral is not a favorite of mine (I've used it perhaps twice since it first came out) but it was one of the colors in Raspberry Tart.  This Embosslits (Simple Flower) is turning… Read More »
