Bloom & Grow Forever

Good Morning Everyone! It's Sunday and this is my first post since I thought I conquered the end of the week dry spell... apparently not... oh well.

This morning's card is my entry for this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #187.

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and I found what I think is a new product by Sizzix and Stephanie Barnard but I can't seem to find much on them... 3-D Drop-Ins die sets. The one I purchased (with my 40% off coupon) has all sorts of cool flower dies in the set so I decided to use some of them for this card!

The back panel is done in Aqua Mist by PTI and then textured in a Swiss Dot pattern. I then wrapped it with some linen thread and added a tag I punched with an old Marvy tag punch I've had forever!

The sentiment comes from a PTI mini set called Signature Series: Butterfly.

I love the "Summery" feel of this card and how clean it is... it's been raining here in Wyoming since it stopped snowing on Mother's Day but today we have some sunshine and we're taking the opportunity to cut out now knee-high front lawn!

Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me today... if you would like to see more of my cards be sure to follow my blog so you don't miss anything :)

  1. I love these bright and happy colors against the cool aqua background. And those leaves are such cool dies. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
