Congratulations, Ann! You have a beautiful gallery and it was hard to choose, but I finally picked this beautiful floral card as my inspiration: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=245562. I used the same floral layout for my focal, with dies instead of stamping. I very lightly shaded the petals from the centers out, then using a darker pink outlined the edges of the petals to give them a little more presence. Added gold stickles for the centers (I may add more - looks kind of sparse) and five pearls.

I hope you enjoy your week n the spotlight, Ann!

Priscilla, this caught my eye right away. It's a beauty. You did a lovely job coloring the flowers. I am going to have to start a board for fie cut cards, but for now I pinned it to my handmade card board. Just lovely.

This is so beautiful and elegant. Those flowers!! Simply wonderful and I like the way the flowers have been shaded - makes them pop. That has to be the perfect die to frame your pretty little flowers. I am so lost for words.
