Natural Beauty

Hi Crafty Friends.....this week is another crazy week in the wonderful world of Kim....I'm gearing up to take my Section 2 of my CPA Exam....eeekkkk....next Wednesday is coming up toooooo fast!  Although I am feeling a little bit better about the topics in this exam vs. the last one.  Hopefully that means something good!

Since I didn't get a chance to play with my Natural Beauty Collection by Carmen Medlin for SCACD that much I decided to use one of these beauties...
When I saw Naturally Styled I immediately thought of making a bridal card.  This shabby chic card would be perfect for a bridal shower....or even for a wedding card!   Papers are from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Collection....I absolutely {heart} these gorgeous papers!!!
Naturally Stylized has been colored with Copics.  The white on the dress has been accented with my Crystal Glamour Dust paint.  I love the multi-color sparkles in this beautiful paint!!!
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Arrangement consists of a 35mm Trellis Rose, 20mm Roses8mm semi-opened Roses, 4mm Closed Rosebuds, Hip Roses, and Gypsophilas.  If you look closely you can see that the Hip Roses have been inter-twined into some gorgeous Raffia Ribbon.  I've used the cream raffia on my card, Wild Orchid carries raffia in a wide selection of colors....make sure you go and check them out because they are GORGEOUS!  Then I took some vintage findings to accent my flower arrangement. 
The cream panel behind my stamped image has been hand stamped.  Isn't that medallion image beautiful?!  I used the My Mind's Eye Stella Rose stamp set and my rich cocoa memento ink to create this beautiful background.
 Here you can see a close up of the raffia ribbon.  Also you can see how I used my zutter paper distresser and crackle paint to create my shabby chic look.
And finally an angled view for the dimension.  The beautiful bow was created with 12mm (1/2 in) silk ribbon and a 10mm Rose from Wild Orchid.  Sentiment is a Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments from Kraftin Kimmie stamps.

I can't seem to find the list of my Copic Colors that I used on this beauty.  I will try to find the list and update this post. :)

**Shopping New** Make sure you head over to SCACD and check out all the amazing new products that Susana has recently gotten in at the store....there is LOADS of new paper....eeeekkkk....I am in total awe over all the beauty there!  She also got in the brand new Kraftin Kimmie stamps!!!

♥ Thanks for stopping by! ♥
