Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Taylored Originals

I'm baaa-aack!!! Miss me?? LOL!! For my card today, I used a new product from Taylored Expressions called Paper Pretties. Now, I've used paper flowers in the past and I'll be the first to tell you, I've never been a fan of them because it never seems to fail, when I take them out of the package, they're all bent up. Uggh!!

Well, here's the cool thing about these. Now I'm not sure if I just got lucky but mine were perfect!! They're very well made and not flimsy at all. I don't know if they're made from a different kind of material but trust me, they're REALLY nice, and I LOVE the little stemen in the center of each flower. So cute!!

So with that said, here's my card I made with them. You know I had to pull double duty and make this card part of my That's Krafty Thursday #35 and I just LOVE how it turned out. I stamped this little vase directly onto the Kraft CS and colored the water with my Copics. I glued the Paper Pretties on with some craft glue and added a few brads to the sides. I cut the image out with my Scalloped Circle Nesties and matted it with some brown CS and again with the Kraft. This DP is from My Minds Eye's Garden Party collection and I finished with a little lace and some taffeta ribbon tied in a cute bubbly bow. Now, here's the great news.... Taylored Expressions is offering these cute little flowers at a 15% discount today through Sunday. How cool is that? Be sure to check out all the other colors available too, Like me, I'm sure you'll want them all. Wanna see some more awesome ideas?
