Have you noticed the fabulous new flowers dotting the shabbiest of cards lately? I have and I am head over heels in love with them. So today I found an old cardboard box (plenty of those around here) and had fun making this for you ...
I used a flower die to cut my shapes. They were painted a soft creme and the edges brushed with a light brown (I'll do better at that next time ... promise). Some holes made with this Paper-Piercing Tool gave added interest. The buttons are from the Subtles Collection. The vintage music sheet and fabulous lavender lace are both from my SIL Shirley ... yep, she's fabulous too. The blue print can be found in a package of Blueberry Crisp Designer Series Paper - I added a single word rub-on. Seam binding dyed with Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant Classic Inks makes for a wonderful bow. The little tag was created with an old set I've held on to and the Jewelry Tag Punch ... so cute peeking out from under the button. Here's another photo ... kind-of a "close up".
Thanks so much for stopping by ...enjoy your day!
