Pretty Floral

This is my blog post today at

Hi, Diane with you today.

I have been making Fall and Christmas cards like mad

I used paper from The Paper Studio Country Road
as my background and went from there.
I know you can't see it properly,
but I used a beautiful PoppyStamps Crochet Corner die
to place under my flowers.
It is so delicate and pretty.

On top of that I arranged a few flowers from my supplies
along with Mini Rose Buds Pink
A few sprigs from Marianne Designs Anja Leaves 2,
and leaf flourishes from Spellbinders Romantic Vines were added.
To finish the floral bouquet, I used a green bow.

I stamped a sentiment from 
Sweet 'n Sassy Flowers In Bloom stamp set.
The sentiment was punched out and inked with Distress Ink.

I double cut 3 butterflies first from 
then from a dotted vellum using
A bit of bling was added to the butterflies with

Thank you for visiting with me today.
