Where Flowers Bloom So Does Hope


Do you love My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found Two line as much as I do? Swoon! Many of the individual paper designs are so beautiful they practically make a card themselves. Here's a quickie taking full advantage of a scalloped label on one of the papers in the Sunshine collection. The sentiment, Where Flowers Bloom Plain Jane, is from Verve Stamps. I just added a few additional elements -- banner strips in two widths, button and twine, a pair of rhinestones, and some zigzag stitching -- and I was all set. I'm kind of liking the shabby, thrown-together look :)

I like the papers so much I haven't cut them yet ;-)) Too pretty!
Well, I wouldn't call that card a quick one (or am I that slow crafter?) - the layering, sewing, cutting, shaping and composing!

I think it's YOU that does great things to the paper, not the other way around, though I'm not gonna lie, I do adore that paper line. This is seriously gorgeous and I love to hear that it just came together easy peasy. LOVE cards that do that!
