Tattered Flowers



I saw this card on Ellen Hutson’s classroom and knew that I wanted those die cuts. After a call to Stamp & Deliver I discovered that she was sold out of these. Determined to have these I looked at Ellen’s store and she had them in stock! With her excellent customer service they were waiting for me yesterday when I returned from a conference. You see, Mom’s birthday is tomorrow and I really wanted to use them on her card. I used paper from the Mariposa DCWV stack. I distressed and inked the background layer with Antique Linen. I used Tattered Rose on the flower and Bundled Sage on the leaves. I did use a small piece of foam between each flower layer. After I took the picture I thought the flower needed some shimmer so I spritzed it with Shimmer Frost. Much better:) The center is from Prima that I had just picked up. What timing!

I hope to get back in the swing of things and make some more cards for the challenges at 365 Cards. Keep checking back…you never know when you will see a new post!
