Thanks Goes Along with Flowers

Hello Everyone,

It is getting late here, but I just finished a card using this week's Card Patterns sketch. I really do like following sketches because of the outcome. One sketch, BUT still so many options. 

I have seen so many different flowers that I want to try, but I like the look of these dainty distressed flowers. I am going to start a list of projects/techniques I want to try this summer and those crinkle ribbon flowers seem to be popular so they are going on my list.

What are some techniques you want to try? 

My Mind's Eye paper ~ Six by Six pad
Kate's ABCs cartridge ~ Flower vase (p. 54) cut at 2 3/4"
From My Kitchen cartridge ~ Oval Shadow cut at 2 3/4" and 3"
Plantin Schoolbook ~ flowers (p. 76) cut at 1/2", 3/4", and 1"
mustard yellow card stock
gray brads
Fiskars stamp
Versafine black ink

Other Challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your night.
Stay Creative,


  1. Love your card, the colors are wonderful and I love how you made the 3 flowers. I haven't tried any fancy flowers yet, but I would to try the ones that you roll up and then spread the petals out. I like your idea of putting a list together of techniques you would like to try.
    Have a wonderful evening.
