I am hooked!  Or perhaps I should say "I am addicted" to making flowers out of cardstock!  (My husband would definitely agree with that statement - LOL!)  Today's card was made for the Cheery Lynn Design's Card Challenge #66 "Add a Flourish".  

The overall look I was attempting to make with this card was one of soft, muted colors.  Have you ever taken a walk during a soft rain in early Spring, and looked at the landscape?  Everything looks so soft  and pastel.  I guess if I were looking for the right term, I would say it is "fairylike".  For this card, I used some Vellum inside the frame to mute the Spellbinder's Fantastic Flourish Three.  I then added two daisy-type flowers in full bloom, and one daisy about to burst into bloom.  There are three small, very pastel pink roses tucked in this spray, along with some olive branches and a Mini Fanciful Flourish.

Thanks for visiting!

Thinking of You!
Welcome to my garden of paper petals. Nothing makes happier than giving a card to someone who treasures it. A friend of mine loves the color purple, so for her birthday, I made her a card with a large purple mum as the center, with light colored purple daisies, some dark purple flowers for depth, and some baby's breath as filler. My friend just loved the card, and has it showcased in a shadow box from Michael's. She couldn't wait to show me what she had done. Imagine my surprise when I walked into her family room, and there on the wall was my card hanging up on the wall. It looks beautiful! I hope you all enjoy it!

More to come ......

I am very new at this blog business, and it has taken me much longer than I anticipated to post my information, so please bear with me, as this "garden" is a definite work in progress!
