Victoria with a Flourish...

Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. -Mark Twain

This week at Cupcake Inspirations we are sponsored by
Flourish with a Bling...Love the Fun Flourishes they have and the Sweeties and I got spoiled with 2 each to play with! I grabbed the Jasmine Puffy Flourish to play with today and paired it with the new Victoria image from Anita Be Stampin! I cut the Flourish into 3 pieces for this A2 card, it would look Amazing whole on a larger card or a Scrapbook page!

I have been hoarding this silk ribbon and these Gorgeous purple Lilliput Roses from Prima so I decided to show them some love, too...

I printed the image very lightly on the inside panel...possibly Too lightly! :-S
Here is a close up of the Gorgeous sparkly puffy Flourish...

Stamps: Victoria (Anita Be Stampin)
Paper: Garden Gala (Webster's Pages,) Iris (Memory Box,) White (PTI)
