Be Always Blooming

I am the hostess this week at the
Fussy and Fancy challenge blog
and I chose the theme
'A Walk In The Garden'.

We have a special  gift voucher this week for one lucky winner and it is to:

You all know how I like digging in my bags of pre-cuts and scraps
and that is just what I did for this card.
I won't be able to list where each piece came from as I haven't a!

I did use a beautiful embossing folder from 
Cuttlebug Preserves set.
I don't know about you, but I decided I love to emboss a
panel, then adhering it to the card front
verses just embossing the front of the card.
I think you get a much neater embossed look that way.

I used up the last of a couple of pansies and a few purple flowers
I had on hand (though they look black).
A few greens were tucked in and a cute little birdhouse as well!

The butterflies came from my butterfly 'bag'
(yes, i even have a scrap bag of butterflies)!

The ribbon is the latest from Really Reasonable Ribbon
with a tiny little heart tied on.
The sentiment I stamped from a Flouishes set.
'Always Blooming'.

Now head on over to Fussy and Fancy
and see all the pretty things the design team has created to inspire you!

Gorgeous card Diane. Love that embossing folder and all your embellishments to make up this stunning bouquet.

Oh, my gosh, how beautiful! An amazing creation from all those bits and pieces. Yours are very organized. All my die cuts are in one bag, except the frames. Ovals, squares, and rectangles each have their own bag. I know you organize by color, too. Love the embossed panel with the die cut backing up your beautiful arrangement. That birdhouse tucked in there and the heart dangling from the ribbon are such sweet additions. I must go water the garden today, but now I kinda feel like stamping!

Hi Disne. My how pretty this card looks. I think you are right about the embossed panels bring stuck to the card front . I have come to the same conclusion as no matter how carefull I am the card always seems to buckle slightly. Love the pink here on your card. Thank you for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Darlene said...

Christine said...

Wow, fabulous!! Delightful card, love these pansies and the gorgous bow! The embossed panel looks great, I agree with you, it's better than the embossed card, it's more elegant and professional.
Thanks for sharing your lovely card at the Butterfly Challenge #59!
