Oh the flower actually has the organza sack material that the ribbon came in behind it. It was the best way for me to really make the product work and a think a creative way to use the sack although I didn't have to. But it was truly the only embellishment that really matched the papers. The lettering is American Crafts thickers, the gold mesh is Magic Mesh and I used my Big Shot to cut the swirls and the nesting label Quickutz dies and the ruffle along the bottom of the frame is actually 3 of the bag tops cut off. And the frame itself is actually a Teresa Collins chipboard album cover and I used my Bigbite to cut the holes for the wire.

Also used magic mesh for this card too. The store owner asked me to use magic mesh in the several ways so that she could have something to show the customers that it was used on. She loved the examples.

Today was such an amazing day. The weather was nice and so we packed a nice dinner and headed to this water park that Vele wanted us to go to for awhile. And it was so nice! I didn't pull out the camera once so I didn't get one picture of the day (I am sure that there will be many more to come since the kids love this park!!)
But I hope that everyone has an amazing weekend and even better Father's day! We have so great plans for Vele this Sunday, but I can't share them here because it actually does read my blog (on his blackberry) every once and awhile and I can't risk spoiling the surprise.
Oh I had to add that DD#1 and I made some really cute girlie jewelry for her. It wasn't Making Memories vintage or anything but it was really cute. So my latest decision is to pick up beads and necklaces from the thrift store and discount stores that we can get really cheap and take them apart and make the new ones. Of course hers will be something that a three year old loves and mine will be something that I can actually wear outside our house lol.
