{Flower Garden}

Good Afternoon! Things have really settled down and I have had lots of time to work on cards! Today I finished up my Valentine Swap cards, and yesterday I made the card I am featuring today! This card was made using the "Brushed Flowers" stamp set by Clearly Inspired. I keep reaching for this set over and over again! I stamped the flowers three times in three different colors, all from Stampin' Up. Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, and Dusty Durango. I cut out the flowers, and accented them with glassy glaze. The leaves were made with the SU two step stampin' set "Wild Rose". I used my Janome Sew Mini, and rust colored string to sew around the three panels behind the Top Note die cut. And I cut another Top Note die cut in Crushed Curry to accent the main image. The ribbon is a giant roll I bought at the Offray Ribbon outlet in Hagerstown Md. I am SO gonna miss that place! I think this card is in my personal top 5 of cards that I have ever made.....which is A LOT! hehe Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you have a great week!

Wow Ronnie! I love this card! I had to click on a close up to get the full effect of the glaze on the flowers. Very cool. What a great layout and I really like the stitching you did on the card. I really have to get out my Janome machine and start using it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Absolutely stunning! Such rich, vibrant colors for these gorgeous flowers. I love how you cut them out and popped them up on the front of your card. The three panels in the background really create a nice effect too. :)
