Say it with a Flourish!

This challenge at Flourishes was particularly fun for me, because I LOVE working with the ribbons and lace, and buttons, and pearls, and well, everything vintage and romantic!
Here's my card. 
When I have a morning like today, I have to just shut myself off in my scrap room and play...  I am sooo frustrated with my medical doctors right now,I could scream!!!!  Leave it to say, from what I'm experiencing, this country's health system is going down the toilet!  But, for now, I'm happy playing with my goodies!

And suffice it to say, when I fell in love with the resin pieces, I decided I had to have tons! Little ones, big ones, and all colors and shapes...  isn't this one gorgeous! Definately a "no mailing" card!

The stamp is Flourishes "Medallion", and I absolutely love it!  I have used it more than most!  It heat embosses so beautifully and detailed.

I've also used this sketch from CardPatterns, as my jumping-off sketch guide.
They have some wonderful metal sheets to giveaway over there!  Check it out!

This is GORGEOUS Jan! Love the CLASSY colour scheme and that cool resin rose!

PS: We socialists up north didn't know you HAD a medical system down ;-)

Hope you're feeling better SOON!

Happy Holiday Hugs,

I'm so sorry that you had such a rough day, Jan! Your card is fabulous! LOVE that one, bright, color spot in the center and all your classy details! Oh! And just pop it in a padded envelope, and it'll survive being mailed :). That's how almost all of mine go.
