It's a Floral Frenzy!!

Hi all! TGIF!! Today, it's Dawn's turn to host the Flourishes Focus over on the Flourishes Blog and I thought I'd play along today. It's all about flowers! She has an amazing project and fun tutorial, so you'll have to check it out HERE!

Because the "focus" is a floral frenzy, I decided to pick up some of the new Prima flowers that Flourishes has in stock. I think these flowers are just too pretty for words and when you put one on a card, you almost don't need anything else!

To create my card, I used a circle cutter to cut a half circle in pink paper and then I grabbed one of the new Flourishes sets called Fanciful Flourishes to emboss the damask image using white detail embossing powder. Stitch around the edge with a zigzag stitch and add some crocheted lace. I used some in my stash, but Flourishes has a brand new trim that is a crocheted lace that is so delicate and pretty! You can find it HERE if you're curious! :-) After that, add some ivory satin ribbon and a Prima and... you're almost done! I stitched up some kraft card stock, added the damask in the lower right corner using some Versamark Ink and then a sentiment in Rich Cocoa and.... voila!!!!

Here's a close up of that purty flower!

I think these flowers are so soft and feminine! I am not a "flower girl" other than stamps and so this was a fun little adventure. I love this layout so much I might make up a few color coordinated cards to give as a set! What do you think??

Don't forget to check out Dawn's tutorial HERE! And, some of the other gals on the DT have some fun to share as well, so be sure to stop by and see.....
