FTTC118, CR84FN28 Nature....and more

Hello again!

If you are looking for my MMSC card please scroll down one post..thank you!

This card was made for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC118 Challenge. Tammy is our host and is inspring us with a photo from  *The Craft Mom's* Paper Flower Topiary.  Isn't it awesome???


Here is my take on it....



I started out by stamping the beautiful nature sentiment from the Flourishes Life Lines Set. My card base was created with the Spellbinder Label 17 Dies. Next I used the Sizzix Bigz 3-D Flower Die to create the roses. I added the punched out MS Butterfly, Silver Pearls, the SU Ribbon and the matching Button..voila!

Before I forget...my card came together using this weeks SSS108 Sketch and the fabbo fun, bright colors from the CR84FN28. My color choice was SU So Saffron and Poppy Parade.


Please make sure to swing by the rest of the team for their card ideas ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, Betty, Tammy and our May Guest Designer Brenda O'Rear aka *Benzi*!!!

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your week and I'll be back soon...hugs ~S~

What beautiful color choices for the roses and how nicely positioned they are. I like that you chose a sentiment and not an image from the inspiration. Wonderful card.
