Inspired by Nature


That's the challenge over at Allsorts challenge blog. Hope all these flowers count. I made this one yesterday while playing and Bill was on the computer. It's kinda fun at times when we're both in there together doing our thing and chatting back and forth sharing what he found and what I made LOL. I used Heartfelt Creations sentiment from Decorative Vintage Cross, Daisy Patch Flowersmatching die. The card stock is scrapes from my basket but I'm thinking most of it is from Basic Grey. I also used a Martha Stewart corner and border punch. Tiny gems were placed around to finish the card and micro beads were placed in the center of the flowers. Okay that's it for now. It's off to Winston Salem today, Bill and I both have doctor appointments. At least it's cheaper on gas, 2 for 1 LOL. I'll catch up with yall later, until then, have a fantastic blessed day! and

Love your card and all the colors, with the different papers and how they all match. So pretty! How fun to have hubby with you and talking and sharing, love it. We rearranged the guest room so my DD can be in there crafting with me. Yes, DH baths the dog, I let him get all wet as Lucky loves the shake and get him back for giving him a bath :)

Beautiful, Olga! Love the dp and die-cuts. Your border looks fabulous, I find my Martha all around border and corner punches difficult to use. Yours looks like it was effortless. Hope travel and appointments went well for you and Bill. BTW-I don't even work in the profession of my final major.

It's so nice when a couple can be in the same room doing the things they each love. I just love today's card! The combination of colors, patterns and layout work so well together. Hope all goes well at you doctor's appointments.
