one little wish...




Hi there. Hope you're having a great week. Thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing a card I made for this month's Papertrey Blog Hop and I'm sending it to my aunt who's celebrating a birthday this weekend. :)


Our hop this month focuses on using flowers as a part of our card.  Well, I am a total nut for flower embellishments. I really like the ones that are kinda odd flowers...not necessarily "real looking", ya know? 


Here is the card I made using my favorite kind of flower embellishment:




I decided to try my hand, also, at using the Papertrey Clearly Creative card stock.  It was fun to work with, though I found my OCD coming out every few minutes when I was using Windex to clear off my fingerprints..LOL. 


Well, there are lots of blogs to see, so get going. Thanks for stopping by!




Stamps: Big Birthday Wishes (Papertrey)
Ink: Basic Black (SU)
Card Stock: Clearly Creative, Lavender Moon, Black, Vanilla (Papertrey); Crate Paper - portrait collection
Extras: Well Worn die set from MFT; Photo Corner die from SU; Prima Flower from Two Peas in a Bucket, get it here

I love the clear cardstock on this one Keva, and those great mats again! They look so good with that sentiment you chose. I also like flowers that aren't exactly true to life looking. Great job today.
