Hey crafty peeps! Hope you all are keeping warm where you are! I can't complain - we've had a very mild winter here in north Florida. We were actually rather excited when we finally got some cooler weather but it's not here for long... it'll be back up in the 70s this coming week! I'm happy to share my Crafty Friends DT inspiration project for Challenge #26 - Floral. Come play with us - we want to see your project with some pretty flowers!

Our sponsors this time are 

I perused my A Day For Daisies stash and came up with the gorgeous Flowers in Bottles digi to use for my CAS hugs note card. This is the first time I've used it and I just love it! Of course I added my signature big bow. My stitched dies have become some of my favorites - I'm using them a lot. I also used a Lawn Fawn border die to create the break in the hot pink die cut background. What a fun addition! ;)

I was lucky enough to have the cardstock, glittered Gumdrops AND the Spectrum Noir flower color match almost exactly. Love it when that happens! ;) I used the white gelly roll pen to add some special touches to the centers of the flowers, the leaves and the bottles, as well as some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers. I left the center of the card blank since it is a note card.

Happy to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury White cardstock, Cricut Reds & Pinks cardstock
  • Stamps: A Day For Daisies Flowers in Bottles digi, Paper Smooches Delightful Greetings stamp set (hugs sentiment)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- IG1, IG2, IG4, CT4, BT1, LG5

  • Accessories: YNS pink glittered Gumdrops, MISTI, tiny green flat-back pearls, Sakura white gelly roll pen, clear Wink of Stella, white fun foam, Prairie Bird Boutique hot pink ribbon

I hope you've found a little inspiration to play in our Floral challenge this time! Be sure to check out all the fun digis at All Dressed Up Stamps and A Day For Daisies! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
