Making Flowers...

 This holiday weekend I've been making flowers...Yes, making flowers!  Paper ones to be exact.  I'm trying to build a good collection of pretty embellishments to put on my cards and projects.  With Heartfelt Creations exclusive dies from Spellbinders AND my Grand Calibur, I'm whippin' these puppies up in no time!  They remind me of my childhood days picking blueberries though...Pick one, eat one, pick one eat two...Hopefully I won't stop every time I make a flower to make a card to go with it! 

I did stop to make a card this time.  I used some deelish paper Linda B. sent me in a care package a few weeks ago.  I just love KaiserCraft paper and this collection is just to die for!!!  Pinks, burgundy, green, cream, tan, DEELISH, I say! 

The other week I went shopping for more Spellbinders dies so I decided to use one of them on this card too.  I love the elegant designs and find they work beautifully to accent my Heartfelt Creations images and sentiments.  Of course, if you create a card that has a patchwork design that's quite busy, you need something that won't overpower it this little circle die did the trick!!!  Oh and see that little bit of lace?  I had a bag of it hiding in my ribbon drawer...from WAAYY back!!!  Love it!

There's machine stitching galore on this card as I wanted this card to feel like a cozy quilt...A patchwork of memories...all rolled up into "ONLY ONE YOU"...Even though there's only one YOU, it took a LOT of pieces to create the perfect YOU!
