Flowers


Great day selling at the hospital yesterday, sold more than at the end of November which was a lovely surprise. Today's card was one of the first ones I sold. Something different from me today, no image. I used DCWV burlap paper and added some ribbon and velvet ricrac ribbon I won at The Ribbon Girl. I used a Crealie die for the flowers, one I must admit I forgot I had. I used it with DCWV gauze paper and added some brads, something else I rediscovered recently. The flowers are Wild Orchid and the pins and sentiment are from stash.

What a pretty card. No wonder it sold so quickly. I love the use of fabric on this - it gives it a lovely textured look.
