Designing Another Creation with Stampin'Up! Tropical Layers Bundle

Today we're Designing Another Creation with Stampin'Up! Tropical Layers Bundle. If you missed our Tuesday creation you can check it out here...

Today's card is a bit simpler but with an added touch of elegance...


and a bit closer to see those rhinestones sparkle...

Gold cu

White on white has such an elegant appearance--add a bit of texture to that and we have a beautiful base on which to work.

Cutting the leaf from gold foil adds a lovely warm shine to the focal point.  The pop of the gold cord bow keeps the eye focused on the central design instead of sliding off the side where the stem is pointing.

We added a bit of "tropical" green by stamping the sentiment in Shaded Spruce. And the 3 sparkly rhinestones takes the design over the top to the next level for which we are always striving.

Again today as we did Tuesday we can leave off the sentiment and keep the card in our stash. When an occasion arises we can add the sentiment and be ready to go in mere moments.
