Thinking of You….

1 Apr

Good Morning Blog Friends!  It is an absolutely beautiful day here in Halifax, the sun is out and it’s not too cold 🙂  I have a pretty card to share with you today….

Green is a color I don’t use often and I am not sure why… (Sue would say that it is because I am obsessed with pink)  actually a lot of people would say that about me! LOL!   Yesterday we had a flower making class at The Cutting Garden and we all had a great time.   I showed the ladies how to makes these rolled flowers, I used these often on my cards, they always turn out perfectly and I like to do them in white so I can sponge on what ever color I want to match the colors I am using on my projects.

For this card I decided to try something a little different with my ribbon so I pleated it using glue dots to hold it into place.  I really like this effect 🙂  The paper I used is by Recollections – Garden florals and I used a Tim Holtz border die to do the fancy edge.  I borrowed this die from my friend Mel and I absolutely LOVE it so I will be picking this die up to add to my collection of “must haves” (this collection is growing quickly!)   😉

Well I hope everyone has a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by!!

    Wow….love this! You really should venture out of the land of pink more often! Wonderful color choices and I really like how the soft yellow ribbon compliments the card so beautifully! Great card my friend!

    Beautiful card, love the new ribbon idea. Did you do a tutorial for the rolled flower? Sure would like to be able to do that.
