Dreaming of flowers and sunshine


More Crate Paper goodness, this one is created from the Bloom collection.

One of my favorite things to do is to see what I can do with just papers (ie, no ephemera, stickers, chipboard, etc).  Apart from the doily (from SRM Stickers) tucked under the large fussy cut flower, I did just that!.  everything else was from the 6 X 6 paper pad.  The large flower, butterfly and 'tag' are all fussy cut.


I added some stitching to the flowers, because... well just because I always seem to need stitching :)  Then just a touch of twine.

The sketch is from: 

and once again, going with flowers and butterflies.

Beautiful card, Laurel. Great idea to just play with the papers. You found some beauties and they certainly worked well with you to create this beauty. :)
