Enjoy the Georgia O'Keefe Moment

This card was made for the Inspiration Challenge this week on Split Coast. Stef showed us www.Posters.com and I was inspired by this Georgia O'Keefe Petunia Print . I used my nested flowers Nestibilities for my layered flower. I crumpled up each piece then opened them up a little. I layered them and attached a center brad. The leaf is Spellbinders Flower Creations 3. After I attached the flower and leaf to the card - I sponged around it with Lavender Lace ink. Then I stamped the sentiment by Papertrey Ink in the corner - the font is similar to the print title - big caps top line and smaller print 2nd line. My card is 4 1/4 square.

I just upgraded to Internet Explorer Version 8 on my computer and I'm having some issues with it - I can no longer copy and paste from my Split Coast gallery to here and I can't move the pictures around once I load them here - can anyone help me figure out what's going on and can I fix it?? Ugggg sometimes I hate computers!

Beutiful flower! I switch to Firefox a few months ago after so much frustration with IE .... I know I had to take the followers off my blog because many people were telling me they could not load my blog with IE....I would switch to Firefox...I love it! No problems at all!! (although I know blogger itself has had problems the past week, nothing to do with IE, though)....

This is gorgeous, Julia! I love Georgia O'Keefe's artwork!

I upgraded to Internet Explorer 8 and was having all kinds of issues, too, so my husband just reset my computer back to the previous version and I am much happier.

Oh no...not IE8!!! I installed that and did some research when normal functions wouldn't work anymore...only to find out that it's not compatible with over 200 programs...my email account, blogger/google, really important stuff, etc... See if you can download and install IE6 or IE7 in place of it or try Mozilla Firefox. It's a good browser firefox but it takes some getting used to. Okay, back to our regularly scheduled program:

Your card is beautiful! I love the dimension of the giant flower and the colors you used! Hope you get your internet issues resolved soon!
