February 23, 2015

Today I am working on getting my stash of birthday cards increased.  I had a small box of them in the car, just in case I forgot one while I was out.  You will never guess…my husband thought it was a recycle item and put it in the dumpster. All that work gone, so I am working to replenish my supply.

I used my silhouette to cut most of the elements, I even used it to pen the sentiment.  These flowers are given their shape by spraying 4 layers of different shapes with ink mist and them scrunching them up and, very gently, pulling them back out. They always look good. I added a little bling to the centers.  The background it a SU die.

Hope you like it and will come again soon.

  1. Oh no! What a tragic story about your card stash getting trashed!! I guess if there's anything positive to say about them being put in the recycling bin, it's that I bet those cards were the prettiest things the recycling bin ever got to enjoy! And good job at starting over from scratch and creating this beautiful card. I really like how you did the hexagon die in the background and how you left some of the hexagons filled in. And of course, those flowers are GORGEOUS! I like how bright the sentiment is, too, and I'm sure whoever gets this card will have a happier birthday as a result of your talents. Now be sure to either hide your new cards or label them as "Treasure" so your well-meaning hubby doesn't put them in the dumpster again! Thanks so much for sharing your work with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  2. Such a lovely card and gorgeous flowers. Thank you for joining us at CFTH challenge. Good Luck
