Pretty As A Flower


Hope everyone was able to get together with family and friends this Thanksgiving! We had a wonderful time and are still enjoying leftover turkey and fixings! So far this weekend I've been able to spend some time in my craft room making cards for OWH. Can't wait to get them uploaded to share with everyone!

In the meantime, this is a card I made for my first shipment of cards to OWH. The layout is from Sweet 'n Sassy Sketch Challenge 17. The card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with a slightly smaller piece of paper pierced Angel cardstock. The next layer is Bravo Burgundy cardstock layered with a slightly smaller piece of paper pierced KaiserCraft Plush Empress Sophisticated patterned paper.

The circles were punched out after stamping Pale Plum on Whisper White cardstock using the Priceless stamp set. The flowers were stamped in Bravo Burgundy on Whisper White cardstock also using the Priceless stamp set then cut out and adhered over the flower image on the circles. At the center of each flower is a small Pewter Kaiser Pearl. Next I cut a strip of Bravo Burgundy cardstock and punched one side using the Eyelet Border Punch. I wrapped White Grosgrain ribbon around it and attached a bow in the front before adhering to the bottom of the card.

Hope you have a great week!
