I'm excited to be participating in my first TPE challenge. I was thrilled and honored to be invited to join their Design Team!! This card was created for challenge #4 which is "using die cuts and ribbon". I had a blast making this card! Due to the fact that my WONDERFUL hubby consented to buying my Mother's Day present early!!! Drum roll please......It's a Cricut!! I know a lot of you have them already but I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much $$$ on one. Now on to the fabulous part, Joanne's had Cricut's on sale for $99.99 this week.......So, I had to seize the opportunity and come up with a plan! :D Happily, it all worked out and I was able to get the Cricut and two cartridges for the price of what one Cricut would've been not on sale!! The frame on the card is an oval nesties negative. The border around the frame is a Home Accents cartridge from Cricut. The flourishes in the corners are from the same cartridge.
I also, added some stitching and paint to the edges. The flowers are hard like resin. I bought them at HL on clearance for 20 cents. I added a bow, button and tag to the flower stems. Thanks, for stopping by.....You're welcome to join us TPE....We'd love to have you! :D
Here's a couple close-ups of the flowers.
