Joan Ervin had it as the technique challenge on SCS. Well, as hostess of the Crazies this month, I challenged the team to use flowers, 'cuz April Showers are supposed to bring MAY FLOWERS!!! I used a floral designer paper behind my trellis, used 1/8 of an inch strips, some flourished bling, Prima flowers, and a bow. I used my Spellbinder label dies to make the frame, and my CB to texturize the background. This card was made for a dear friend and is now on the way to her for her birthday. Hope she likes it.
Now remember to check out the fabulous florals of the rest of this fabulous design team by visiting the Crazies Blog. To see more details on the individual team member's creations, use the links on my sidebar to travel to their blogs/galleries.
I also entered this is Our Creative Corner's challenge to use some weaving on your card.
Speedy's Friends this week was brought to use by Susan, queen of CAS. She wanted us to create a card with ONLY ink, stamps, and papers. Nothing else. NO embellies. I used a soon to be released set, called Made in America, by Mark's Finest Papers. I also used a star embossing folder (I think from CB) and a star die from My Favorite Things. I am really happy with the soft versions of the more traditional red, white, and blue.......what do you think?????
Can't wait to see the fab 'simply ink/paper/stamp' creations by the rest of the team!!! If you are interested in viewing them, then visit the Speedy's Friends blog post. I am sure you will be dazzled. To see more details on the individual team member's creations, use the links on my sidebar to travel to their blogs/galleries.
