Time to Bloom


Here's a quick, sorta clean and simple card for today. I made the sunflower using My Favorite Things' Sunshine Die-namics die. Along the bottom is a ricrac border cut from natural canvas fabric using MFT's Jumtbo RicRac Die-namics die. The leaf and stem ribbon is by May Arts, I believe, and the Kraft Wavy Scallop Envelope is by Maya Road. The washer style button is from Papertrey. The sentiment is from MFT's Green Thumb Mini. The open scallop border along the bottom was punched out of a separate piece of Dark Chocolate card stock using Martha Stewart's Optic Dots border punch. I've tucked it behind the card base such that only the lower portion of the punched design shows. Hope that makes sense!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a great week!

Wow! This is great! You are so creative! I just love all the detail in this: the button for the center of the flower, the stem, the unique button on the bottom, the ric rac, and that curvy scalloped border. So fantastic.
