Nothing Too Much


Nothing too much to share at the moment because I've been busy with some stuff for Beautiful Cards Magazine. So anyway a while ago when I was blog hopping I came across this absolutely beautiful card. (You need to go take a look.) I absolutely loved the flower but I don't own a Cricut so thought I'd have a go with my Sizzix Build a Flower die. You can see here the result. I don't really like the card but I'm OK with that because the main point was the flower and that definitely has potential so watch this space.

This next card was created to use up the left over die cut flowers. It's a simple card made from scraps but I'm really happy with it. I doodled on the flowers with a marker then used a quickie glue pen to add glitter. The scallop is cut from the same paper that the sentiment is stamped on but I coloured it with an inkpad and chalks. I added bling to my brads with stick and stamp embossing powder. You probably need to click on the photo to see it better to get the full effect. tfl.
