Pretty Little Flowers


Another non-stamped card for me, woo hoo! Unfortunately, it didn't take me any less time because I struggled forever with the placement of the flowers - the OCD came out with a vengeance on this one! The good thing is the paper itself was so pretty, it didn't seem to matter. Both the image and the sentiment were adhered with foam tape for dimension, although I'm not sure you can tell if you're looking at it dead on. I didn't intentionally mean for it to come out that way, but now that its done, I kinda like the 3-D look it created. The flowers were all hand-punched and attached with glue dots, although, like I said, it wasn't as easy as it looks. I added the small pearls in the center too because they needed a little more and voila! I'm ultimately pleased with the way it came out and have already received a custom order for another one (yay!), so I might be trying to tackle this one again. I'm curious to see if changing the paper makes the difference. We shall see...

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Alissa, very nice card. I think i'm going to have to case this one. And I love your new look. I wasn't sure if I was in the right blog page. I had to double check.
