Floral Delights @ LCI

Good morning my lovelies hopefully this post has arrived on the scene as I should be at this momemt in time, laid on a beach soaking up some much appreciated sunshine!!

It's time for a new challenge today at
and my gorgeous friend Julie would like to see 

Flowers and Embossing

Well flowers is ok with me but embossing is something I don't really do much of, so I went with a nice and simple CAS style card
As you all know these white cards are almost impossible to photograph  -in the end I just had to step away from the camera!
I've used one of the original Floral Delight images available HERE but check out the rest of the DT, along with some lovely GDT's as they all have new additions to the Floral Delight family.
I was scared of this image when Kerry first sent it to me - but now I love it and I know I will use it lots and lots!

oh hang on a minute there's no ice in my Mojito - you just can't get the staff!!
Gotta get back to my sunbathing!!!

Love 'n' Sunshine Laurie xx

Kathleen said...

Well I personally feel that you couldn't have picked a better image to use, I love this image and infact it was the one I used for the last challenge but was very near to the knuckle on entering when I realised that I had used white ribbon instead of pink.
Love the image on the white embossing folder and your colour. choices.
Fabulous to see you again and hope your cold is better.
Have a fabulous holiday/rest.

Gorgeous CAS card Laurie. Love the monochromatic bouquet and the embossing. I intended to colour this image recently but could not remember where I put my printed sheet. I found it back and will probably attempt to colour it up one of these days...

Laurie, your beautifully colored floral delight image looks fabulous on this sweet red and white simple card. TFS! Hugz, ~ Rose

This is so lovely! I love how you coloured your flowers and how the circle emboss emphasise the flowers.
