Primas and Basic Grey

How long has it been since I've posted a card?! I've just been doing other stuff, I guess. It felt good to sit down at my stamp table last night and make up a couple cards. I'll show one today and another tomorrow because they're totally different from one another.

Hardly any stamping on this! Just the soon-to-be-retired French Script background in Close to Cocoa. I REALLY wanted to incorporate my new Essentials 2 prima flowers on this so I picked out some Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter patterned paper from one of my 6x6 pads. I also used my new favorite, the Color Spritzer, and a black marker all over the card base. Just as I went through a phase of tearing everything, I know need to put aside the Spritzer and move on!

This card doesn't feel like something I'd usually make, but I like it and its colors very much. I know just who I want to send it to!

This is the other half of the piece of 6x6 Basic Grey paper. Someone at work saw the first one, and wanted one like it, so I got out the other half of the paper and got to work. The red dots were punched out and I layered a piece of Ruby Red cardstock behind it to pull in the red again because this half of the paper didn't have any red on it. They were previously white dots.
