Beautiful cards Gretchen. I love the colors!

This is really great! LOVE the step-it-up versions of this. Why don't I think about tying a bow & placing it where I want it with a glue dot? I kinda forgot about this idea, but thanks for reminding me!


Wow gorgeous!

All three cards are wonderful! But have to admit you really took it to the top with the last one. WOW! Very creative. Love your rich colors.

I just found this blog via SCS. LOVE the concept of a card in 3 progressive versions! Not to mention you used some of my favorite stuff!! I am gonna follow this blog!!


Beautiful, just beautiful.

Joanne Fletcher

Very very nice. Your imagination fascinates me, I really like the first one and then the next one is better and the third one just blows me away.


Those cards are so beautiful. I always look forward to your "takin' it to the top" I learn so much.
Thanks for sharing.

I love this weekly feature of your blog.


Gretchen, those are beautiful cards. That happens to be one of my favorite sets. I've used it many times, but never used multi flowers. Thanks for sharing that idea.


Beautiful cards. Love the colors and sponging of the flowers.


Gretchen, I absolutely LOVE your takin' it to the top examples. Thanks for sharing your beautiful work!

Maureen vollaro

Just awesome! I have to agree that you make it look so easy and you make me believe that I can do it too! LOL Did you use the crystal effects on the entire flower? or just to attach the 1/2 pearl?

It is amazing to me to me how different these three cards are. Your ideas are so helpful. TFS! I have a question about these comments. How do you get the cute little design box in front of your comment?


This is absolutely wonderful! I love how you did this and I will make the attempt this week to step-up some of my cards. Thank you so much for sharing. They are all beautiful!

Stephanie Perry

All three of the cards are lovely, but the 3rd one is absolutely gorgeous and just shows how a little more work and attention to detail can really create a "wow" card!! TFS every week, love all the little detail hints, very helpful.

I think this is the first time I have seen you're "Takin' it to the Top" post and I must say I am soooo impressed. You are such an inspiration. Thank you for having this on your blog. This is such a help for those of us who need a little umph!!! Thank you!!! OH, and the cards are BEAUTIFUL!!!


Wow! They all look so elegant but you can definitely see the step up in each card. Wonderful. Thanks for sharing.


Wow! What a wonderful way to show different levels of working with the same basic design, colors and stamps. Actually I love them all. Thanks for sharing!
