Flower brads

When Stampin' Up!'s Spring-Summer catalog came out back in January, one of the first accessories on my list was the flower assortment designer brads (p. 175). But then, what did I do? I put them away and hoarded them. What was I thinking?? I mean, they're so darn cute! So as I was looking through the images of the new "Eight Great Greetings" stamp set, I found the perfect place to try one out.

I love how it adds some dimension to the flowers. I colored one of the flowers with a Pumpkin Pie marker to match the designer series paper and then used a So Saffron flower brad for the other, giving it some dimension. And speaking of dimension, you know how hard it is for me NOT to use stampin' dimensionals, so, of course, they found their way to my card too!

Satisfied, Diana?! ;-)
