A Bucket filled with Flowers


On a recent trip to my favorite craft store, I spotted this cute little I.O. bucket die and for some reason I immediately thought of filling it with little flowers?! LOL I found a tiny snippet of smoky slate cardstock and cut it, adding some Copic coloring on top. The grass was a snippet of green grass I found in my stash, so I added that beneath the bucket. The flowers were all pre-punched with a SU! mini flower punch and dotted with black and clear gemstones in the centers. (Whenever I have tiny snippets left from a project, I usually punch them into flowers or tiny elements and keep them in a container for future use.) There are some punched MS ferns and an unknown die-cut stem in the center. I die cut the image panel with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die, adding black and pink mats, then die cut the SU! dsp panel with stitched rectangles and matted with black, putting it all on a pink card base. The sentiment is from SU!'s the Herd, and the inside says "and I hope you're feeling better."

 I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks #287 & 288.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Monday!

How simple lovely! I love the punched art and that bucket looks so real life. What a great card. I like the idea of punching flowers out of the scraps. Do you think I could find them again later though? Hmmm....
