Flower Power



Just a very simple card for two challenges: Clean and Simple Stamping FTL91 for the layout and CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge for the theme - A Touch of Green. Some of the supplies I used were the Swiss Dots Embossing folder, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Little Leaves die, Oval Punches, Scallop Circle Punch, and the Rhinestone brad. The paper I used was Night of Navy,White, and an unknown navy polka dot. The leaves were in Certainly Celery.


I made a card very similar to this not long ago - at least as far as the flower went. I used black and white and polka dots on that one.

The trick on this one was getting the picture taken! I attempted to take a picture in the house but it just was not working right - even with my homemade light box and I couldn't take it outside due to rainy weather. There was finally a break in the weather early this morning, so I hurried out there to snap a photo. Just when I did, about a 30 mile an hour wind came up!!!! Really.......so then it was a matter of trying to snap the picture before it would blow over. Whew! I think it took longer to take a picture of this than it did to make it!

Thanks for stopping by..................
