Fab Friday Joyful Blooms

Fab Friday photo FabFri19picA.jpg

Went bold with this Fab Friday sketch and tweaked it just a bit so I wouldn't cover up this gorgeous wreath from Verve's Accent Notes set.

Love red, black and white cards as it is such a strong colour combination and always makes for an eye catching card.

Was fussing about which embossing folder to use on the white background panel, and in the end decided to just leave it plain so it didn't take away from the focal element.  Added some black half pearls for a bit of "oomph" and the polka dotted ribbon to balance things off.

Thanks for popping in today!
