Just for You


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for a couple of challenges:  CAS(E) this Sketch #31 and SCS Free For All Challenge (F4A172 - include at least four flowers).

I used my "new to me" Fresh Daisies die from Simon Says ... love these blooms.  Die cut three sets of two and cut one away so I'd have a bouquet of five (odd numbers always looks better!).

Used my Stampin' Up! heart embossing border for the bottom and a thin pale green ribbon with white edging to finish off.  Hope you like.

Here's the sketch:





Stamps:  Precious Butterflies - sentiment only (SU!)
Paper:  White, Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry (SU!)
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Fresh Daisies die (Simon Says), Heart embossing border (Sizzix for SU!), Stylus and mat, sponge, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals




Here's a close-up:

Beautiful, Loll, love how you coloured and arranged the flowers, they look really striking against the white background, and the embossing makes the perfect border.

Been Under the weather last few days, something knocked me down, feeling just a tad better tonight.

This is so elegant, Loll! And I see another die that I'd love to have. My list grows and grows. The partial embossing adds so much interest and the narrow ribbon is just right to accent it without taking away from the flowers!
