Ways to use it: Spice it up!

Spice it up?? WHAT, I have to put spice on my cards now. Well it turned out ok. In fact I love this card. The new set from artful INKables: Sunburst Dandies worked great with the cilantro leaves. Yes that is real cilantro leaves on this card. One never knows the next new thing to paper craft with. On the dandelion the center of the flowers is tiny micro beads. Were they fun to work with or what. After trying to chase those little things with my fat fingers I decided to use tweezers, what a novel idea. I love the way this card turned out, the colors are so soft and pretty with the black just enough accent. Here is what I used.

Stamps: artful INKables: Sunburst Dandies and Basic Salutations
Paper: SU vanilla and basic black, K&Company: Classic K Designer Mat Pad
Ink: SU: Rose Red and Always Artichoke
Accessories: Tacky Adhesive for the Micro beads by Jewelry essentials, Hat pin with beads by Bead Treasures, ribbon by offray, pearl brads by Brides; Gartner Studios, cilantro leave by McCormic.

Thanks for looking. The Ways to use it challenge can be found here WT175
