Hand Made Flowers…

21 Feb

It feels like forever since I have just picked up a pretty piece of paper and just started to randomly create….

I have been drooling over this beautiful paper that Kim has on display at The Cutting Garden.  I keep picking it up and admiring it until I finally decided to have a go at making something with it.  In truth…. It is so beautiful, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do it justice! LOL!!!  I apologize, I forgot to make note of the name of the paper but I plan to pick up some more and I will make sure I let you know what it is in my next project.

Here is my hand made flower…  I wanted to try to find some old dictionaries to use but couldn’t get my hands on one so I ended up hacking up one of Tony’s old novels he was finished with.  The poor book was actually falling apart, so I felt justified, it must have been well read.  I hope there isn’t any scary words on my flower because it was an old horror novel he has owned for years! LOL!

Here’s a look at the whole card…

The flourish die is by Memory Box and it is called Elegant Scrollwork, it seems to go very well with the butterfly 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful evening!

Lisa 🙂
