3 Flowers


A cute little card for this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. I don't normally make black cards, but I thought my CAS approach worked well, even with the absence of my need for white. Mark's Finest Papers is having a Speedy the Cat's Friend Challenge to use 3 flowers. Cute Card Thursday challenge is to Reuse, Renew & Recycle and I stamped one of the flowers on an envelope from my friend, I'm a paper hoarder and I liked the shade of red. Glad I could put it to use. The other two flowers were scraps from my overflowing collection of papers. Other Lovelies is having a flower themed challenge.

Materials: Hero Arts stamp (cut the flowers out of a larger Hello stamp), black & white card stock, Making Memories eyelets, Fiskars scallop cutter, Red/White/Yellow scraps

Loved the inspiration (and that website!) and your interpretation of the apron. The flowers are so pretty against the black.
Thanks for joining us at Speedy's Friends this week!

(my husband & I went to NZ for our 'trip of a lifetime' about 6 years ago- we'd have moved there if I didn't love my family so much!!)

Fantastic card, love the black, and I think anyone that would receive it would as well. You just don't see black based cards much. Makes the red and white pop, just as in the dress.
