Friendship Flowers

Hi friends!  It's Friday and that means it's time for a new sketch over at Viva la Verve!  This week's sketch is from Teresa, and I had a whole lot of layering fun with it!

I've been a bit overwhelmed by choices lately, so I'm trying to just work with scraps that are on my desk this week.  That way I don't have to delay the whole card making process just because I'm having a hard time deciding what paper to use!  {grin}  I swear, sometimes I spend 30 minutes just deciding whether to start with white or cream cardstock!  Eeek!

Anyhow, so here's that Seaside paper from October Afternoon once again.  For stamps, I pulled out Lean on Me and the leaves from Bloom & Grow.  The flowers are cut with the coordinating Pointed Flowers Die Set and the leaves are cut with the coordinating Elegant Leaves Die Set.  I just kind of clustered the leaves around the circle, then realized when I flipped the sketch in my mind, I didn't flip the direction of the leaves. Oh well... artistic expression, right?!  I finished off with a bit of twine, some enamel dots and a touch of glossy glaze and glitter.

  2. Wow, this is gorgeous! Love the distressing paired with the woodgrain paper!

  3. Hmmm, hmmmm good :) Reminds me of some wild flowers growing on a fence or against a barn. Love the look and the wonderful spray of leaves.
