Enjoy the simple things

Thought I'd share a card I made recently playing around with paints and inks . It was such a dull day when I was making it I went some cheerful colors . Pattern paper is from Bo Bunny Madeline collection some I had left over from a previous project . The flowers were made using TH tattered flowers and the leaves from my new favorite die by Prima Marketing . The frame was embossed twice with TH ornamental frame embossing folder and fussy cut out  and layered then painted with Spun sugar distress paint and sponged around the edge with Victorian lace DI.  The flowers were sponged with Squeezed lemon DI and the leaves with Shabby shutters DI. I added some white acrylic paint to the tips of the flower. Stamp is from Just Rite stamps . Lace is TH vintage lace die and the corners are CLD




I'm entering this in :

Hi Marilyn: Just stopping by your blog after returning from vacation. Wow, have you been busy! Really, really like the flowers you created on this card and also on the previous post. They are so delicate. The ornate frame is beautiful -you certainly have patience to fussy cut it! Nice Tim's Tag too!

Hugs,Sharon

Love your flowers! What kind of paper do you use?
I was hoping to die cut some flowers last night but came on the computer and got side tracked!
I painted a shingle yesterday and want to make one with the roses! I was going to die cut water color paper and coffee filters!
Thanks for sharing and inspiring! Have a great day!
