Love, Admire, Respect You

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today. It features the silhouette and a sentiment from Pretty Momma. The hibiscus flowers are from Get Outta Town, the leaves are from Zoo Crew and the banner is from Hang Ups. All the coloured cardstock is from the Beverly Collection. I adhered the fussy cut silhouette on a die cut oval and sponged around the edges. Then I stamped and fussy cut the flowers, leaves and banner, all from different cardstock colours from the Beverly Collection. The only colour I didn't use was the blue which is why I added blue gems to the banner. This card would work for Mom, a fabulous girlfriend or any female figure you love, admire and respect!

Have to admit.. the Pretty Momma stampset didn't really appeal to me when I saw the release =/ Cute but very classic..
BUT..the last few days people keep showing me wrong =D
Love how the flowers and banner pump up the volume a little bit!

Love how you combined these stamps together Emily! Beautifully done!

Fun! I like the juxtaposition of the silhouette with the hibiscus flowers. The long format of the card really suits the design, too.
