Always here for you


Do you enjoy making your own flowers?  Though more time consuming, it's a great technique to learn because you can color match so much easier when you make the flowers yourself.  For this card, I made small buds with the Rose die against a white on white Lattice Background.  To make the rose, I use the smallest dies on yellow card stock and sponged the edges with an orange ink.  I then curled the petals and used a green semi-circle to anchor the petals.  I added a sentiment from To My Friend framed using the Squares die and  Pierced Squares dies with matching yellow/orange tones.  The Fancy Foliage die is a perfect "vine" for the flowers to bloom upon.

Finally, I added a pop of the complimentary color purple by adding a butterfly using the Fancy Fritillary die.  I love how this card turned out even though yellow and orange may be my least favorite colors.  :)



I hope you can play along with this month's challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge:
