CCEE1210 -- Flowers, Flowers, Flowers


As this month's CCEE Stampers Challenge, I was thinking of spring and challenged the team to use FLOWERS, FLOWERS, FLOWERS.  I was totally influenced by a new MS Anywhere Punch for this card.  I just love this lattice-like effect you get from repeated uses of the same punch.  I then used some of my supply of Primas.  I have never met a Prima I don't want to have....of course that is true of punches, Spellbinders, embossing folders, brads, and other items too......I just love stamping supplies......

Anyhoooooooo.....I used this friendship saying as my focal piece and used my Spellbinders to die cut and emboss the sentiment panel and to create the flourishes surrounding the framed sentiment..  I then sponged it with Pretty in Pink SU ink.  A doily die from My Favorite Things was use to frame the sentiment panel.

Now, if you need a taste of spring, be sure to stop at the CCEE blog to see all the floral creations.

Today is supposed to be in the 60's here in CT.  If the sun stays out in the afternoon, the 70's are possible.....how wonderful is that!!!!

Good challenge, Joanne. That background panel you used on this card is gorgeous, as are those pretty flowers. Beautiful job, my friend!!!

Wow, this is gorgeous. I've shied away from those anywhere punches, thinking it would be difficult for me to line up all of that correctly. You did a marvelous job with it.

The punched background is a perfect card-maker's garden trellis to show off those amazing Primas. They almost look sculpted.
