And a bit closer...

Peach cuThis gorgeous background is created using Peach Pie ink on Peach Pie cardstock...this design is wonderfully simple as it blends into the background without overwhelming the focal point. AND, as promised, you now can have a lovely designer paper in any of the 50 Stampin'Up! fact, it's really 61 since we have 2 In color families and the new Basic Beige.

We layered the stamped cardstock on a slightly contrasting Pumpkin Pie to bring a little border around the background.

The flowers are die cut using the flowering stems from the Flowers of Beauty bundle. We used the Peach Pie Glimmer paper which is absolutely stunning against this plaid bed.

The ribbon is the Iridescent Striped Trim...this ribbon not only adds sparkle but the striping threads reflect the gold and makes it a fantastic finish to the stems

The rhinestones are colored with Dark Pumpkin Pie Blend and enhance the over all sparkle.

I'll give you step by step directions for today's project below followed by the supply list.
