Passionately Artistic

Today we are Dreaming of Spring so come join in the fun. I have two cards to share today. The first one using my handmade flower textured with a dotted folder and a fluffy center with stickles for some bling. The purple is embossed with a SU folder and stitched onto the aqua. The ribbon is dyed and there are stickle dots all around the aqua border. The sentiment is stamped and the cut with a Spellbinder label #17. Buttoned corners finish it.

My second card using a striped dp stitched onto the white. The scripture is cut out with a Spellbinder label #13 and matted on dk pink. A ribbon and bow added. My layered flowers were cut out of with a Spellbinder flower nestie. The flourish is the one I made on the tutorial. I used the I rock heat tool and cut out after the brads were set.

These two cards are just perfect. The turquoise and purple combo is so ethereal looking and the flower with its beautiful center reminds me of my big clematis flowers. I just got that tulip frame folder last month. Love it! Your pink card is very special as it has all the elements of, flowers, crisp white and a wonderful Scripture. Great job!

Love and blessings, Martha
