Get Well Card


While rummaging through my older supplies, I came across this old embosslit flower burst die by Sizzix and decided to use it since it hasn't seen any love for years. I cut 3 flowers with white and started with a cherry cobbler card base, adding a strip of matching ribbon along with 2 snippets of torn dsp from an unknown black & white paper pad I bought without a cover. I added a Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish die cut in black and placed some red gemstones in the centers of the flowers. I die cut a tiny tag from MFT, and stamped a TE sentiment on it, adding 2 tiny flowers done with SU! mini punches and added a snippet of matching ribbon along with some silver metallic cord. For the final touch, I randomly added clear rhinestone gems and called this one done. 

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:


Cuttlebug Mania - "You are Tagged"  - use a tag in your creation

Double D challenge - "Flowers Galore" - use multiple flowers on your creation
   

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Friday!

This card is exquisite! Call me crazy, but to me, it has an Asian inspired flair. The flowers look amazing, as does the tag and the touch of lace. Wonderful card, my friend.
