Sending Lots of Love

Hi blog friends...Just a quick post today ~
I’ve had this crocheted doily for the longest time in my stash, so when I saw this week’s challenge at The Card Concept, I knew it was time to take it out!





We are being asked to create a card using a Floral Theme, and select a design category...I think this card is considered Clean & Layered.

So, I  stamped and die cut the flowers and leaves from the Wplus9 Fresh Cut Florals set, and created a simple arrangement. Then, I stamped the sentiment on to the die cut banner, added glitter to the flowers and popped everything up on a Berry Sorbet cardstock card base.

Well, that’s it for me...I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by  ~
Barb

So so pretty Barb, you've reminded me that I have some hat pins that I've been saving/hoarding.... maybe I need to just create instead of procrastinate lol.
