Some new fun paper

Not long ago I had the pleasure of shopping with my sister Kelly
and we found some nice stuff- tho it certainly wasn't bargain shopping- I guess Michaels new 'policy' is- mark it clearance for the regular price and stick it in the bins so the customer can't find the regular pricing, therefore not realizing that it's simply overstock and NOT really clearance!
Once we figured that out I think we still did pretty ok - and we shared some of the packages we purchased. Some of it was this very beautiful K&CO paper- it's metallic, and glittered, and flocked- all sorts of pretty pretty to play with! For this top card, I cut out the flocked medallion and put it on my card, almost envelope-like. I used a K&CO pearl, and some Anna Griffin ribbon. I also used a flower from Prima that I bought- cant see it- but I glittered it- so pretty! I think the rubon is MM and I used some MM stick pins as well.

I decorated the inside as well, with a few strips of paper, a Bobunny rubon saying and another type of prima flower.

These beautiful little journal spots are double sided, one side metallic print the other plain. So I added a bit of Bobunny cardstock and placed it for my background on my card. I cut the blfy out of some paper then used metallic thread on my button to match the gold metallic of the paper.
The sticker and ribbon are both Bobunny, I used gluedots to adhere the ribbon in the scrunched shape.

I cut out another blfy from the patterned paper, added a couple brads and rubons from One Heart.. One Mind and Reminisce.

Thanks for stopping in!
have a great one!
