A completely different take on a card comes from Viktoriya Porechnaya. She uses pastel pinks and fabric embellishments for her romantic spring card.

The moment I get home, I shed my entire day. For me that starts with jewelry. Out of habit, I first take off my rings and the one bracelet I wear every day (a recent Christmas gift). Next, I’ll typically change out of whatever I’m wearing. Most recently, it’s a pair of silk tap shorts and a?linen T-shirt?(J.Crew?makes the best). Lastly, I like to slip into something comfortable. My friend, Andrea Racey, designs a line of silk robes called,?Helena Quinn. You’ll often find me in her?Navy Rose Print.
The world would have been less beautiful a place without flowers. The colors, appearance, and fragrance of flowers elevate love and happiness in life. For its aesthetic appeal, they are still the best kind of gifts for all kinds of special occasions. A flower arrangement is an artistic arrangement of flowers and apart from special occasions, one can also bring these floral arrangements to their living room, office table, or study table on any regular day. Because flowers set the mood right and help in bringing more focus and concentration to work.
Though this recipe calls for only four ounces of white chocolate, it will be easier to temper if you work with a larger amount, say, one pound. The remainder of the tempered white chocolate can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. To reuse, melt it to 109 degrees.
