Flower Power!


Happy Wednesday!

Half way through this Flower-Power-Retro inspired card I nearly gave up, because it was sooo time consuming! I did finish it though, but if you are looking for a "ten minute card" this is not the one you`d want to make...LOL! The card is based on this SCS sketch.

I used the smaller part from the Fleur De Lis Pendants set for the background, and I also used the Blossom Nestabilities. The flowers are from Flourishes , and they are stamped, colored with Le Plume Markers and cut out. IOW very easy;)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have ha wonderful day!

Wow, if someone who makes cards as beautiful as you always do says it is time consuming I can't even imagine how long it might take me to try to CASE it.

Yowzers! The thought of coloring all those flowers is mind boggling and then cutting them out! What a gorgeous card to show for all the effort. Now you can't send it as it needs to be framed and hung up.

Bought some MORE nestabilities because of HOW you use 'em!

Another beauty ... and a lot of time "cutting" all the nests to make this card!
