Fifth Avenue Floral by Stampin Up and me

Happy Friday everyone?
The PPA Challenge #78 encouraged us to create a clean and simple card and finish it up with a bow.
  • I just realised that they gave us some advise on how to tie this bow.. (I will use that tip for my next bow for sure.. ) They wrote this: Turn your project upside down and then tie your bow.It is amazing how this usually makes your bow turn out just right!
My dear friend Esther had her birthday the other day & I wanted to create an elegant card for her. I played around a bit and came up with this simple idea. The sentiment that I inked up in Baja Breeze is just perfect with these flower images that I used from the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set from Stampin Up. It has 'Bloom' all over it. & that's my prayer and wish for her.. that she will bloom and flourishes in the areas she wants to grow in her life!.. Even when no one is watching.. (sounds like sentiment from a stamp set :) Anyway.. she loved the card. :)
Doesn't the Real Red Grosgrain ribbon from SU make this card pop and pretty? I love when that happens.
I am so happy the weekend is here again. Yesterday it was +15 Celsius in Calgary.. Oh so beautiful and warm. But then this Sunday it will be -26 Celsius.. Talk about a difference eh.. ?..
But this too will pass. I am sure!

Well.. I hope you will have a great weekend. Tomorrow I will post 2 other sweet cards that I created with the Fifth Avenue stamp set from Stampin Up. You're welcome to visit again and I would love to hear from you.


  1. That Real Red grosgrain really does "pop" off that Baja Breeze card, Pauline. I love that color combo - I have yet to try it myself though. Your friend will treasure the card and the thought behind it! Hope you have a great weekend and bundle up!!!

  2. Gorgeous creation, Pauline! That red ribbon looks so amazing on Baja Breeze and I just love how elegant it all looks together. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, please try to stay warm. What a difference in just a couple of days. :)

  3. Cute card....thank you for playing along with Pals Paper Arts.


Thanks so much for leaving your comment. Enjoy the rest of your day! Take care, Pauline
