I knew I wanted to use Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper.  So, that was  my starting point and this was the ending result ...


Stamps:  Fabulous Florets, 
Paper:  Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
DSP:  Elegant Soiree
Ink:  Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, So Saffron
Accessories:  Baja Breeze ribbon (retired), pearls, corner rounder, itty bitty punch, circle cutter, blender pen
All products are Stampin' Up

I used my blender pen and ink refills to color the flower.

I hope you will find some time join the rest of the uber talented Pals in this fun challenge.  As always, I am looking forward to checking out your cards.

Have a great day,
Pam~

Pam, this is certainly a beauty. Oh, I just love Baja Breeze and only have a bit left. Ugh! Your ribbon is awesome (too bad these things have to retire) when they are so loved. Beautiful paper, too

My sis came from Tuscaloosa Wednesday and we headed the next day to Huntsville to the scrapbook store, Once Upon a Scrapbook. Yes, we loaded up...actually went somewhere else to shop for a while and returned later in the day and she had gotten in a lot of new things while we were away...yikes...hard on the wallet. LOL
Do you ever visit there?
Sorry about your son's team, too. That hurts.
