Flower Softed Firework Blooms

This is one of the cards I did for my first 'assignment' on the SCS Product Review Team. We were given samples of several colors of the new Flower Soft Ultra Fine to play with. On this card I added it to the small dots at the flower tips. In real life, it looks quite cool.

My image is by Penny Black. The border punch is by Martha Stewart.

You are all going to have to keep reminding me that computers are my friends 'cuz I am not feeling too kindly towards them  Yesterday morning my mouse died so I had to drive to the store to get a new one.....not so bad....but that was not the end.....!!!  In the afternoon I noticed that some emails I had sent had not registered correctly in my sent box.........hmmmmm....what could that be???  Well....come to find out even though I had written them today the 30th , they were dated the 28th in the inbox.  Now that would have been bad enought, but NO the computers were not done with me yet.  I decided that with all this wonky stuff going on I better do a long overdue backup of the files......witih my Click Free....which on everybody else's computer you just plug in and it does its stuff.....but NO, not on mine.......finally had to get the computer whiz (my sister) to help out on that.  Finally got that all done.  Was all the computer wonkiness gone...NOPE.....the keyboard decided not to work.  Now all this fixin' meant crawlin' on the floor on my arthritic knees and body.....NOT FUN......but (with fingers and toes crossed) things now seem to be working!!!!

Well...I am now hoping for an uneventful Sunday with lots of stamping time.  May you have a fabulous end to your weekend.

Loving the new flower soft on your card Joanne. Sorry to hear about your computer woes, they are great when they are working .. not so when they play up. Funny thinking someone could be upset when a mouse died .... oh the times we live ha ... different type of mouse ;)

Nice image)) And the card is fantastic!! I wonder what way did you make these holes on the paper's border? They are so cute, seems to be done by sewing machine, but maybe I am wrong ... as always. I am new in cardmaking and any thing makes me being surprised a lot )))))

Gorgeous, Jo! The colors rock, and I love the dimension with the flower soft on the flower tips.
My computer has been doing wonky stuff, too, and I don't know enough, so, therefore, I am dangerous when I try to fix mine. I hope yours are all worked out now!

Oh, I did miss this, haven't been here in 2 whole days...well, at least you Know what to do...I have no clue about these things...which is one reason I am always so far behind on everything. But hey, this is the most absolute GORGEOUS card...it is one of my favorites on your blog...I love the colors, the stamp, and the bit of flower soft detail just sends this over the top!! So you did good inspite of so much frustration!
