Don't wait for someone

Did you get some new craft supplies for Christmas?  Well, I did - and I have to admit that I got them for myself.  It's the best way to get exactly what you want.  Lol!

This Elizabeth Craft Design Amaryllis die was actually something given to me a while back but I never got around to using it.  Why did I wait?  I love how bold it is - yet is does not take away from my sentiment from the Where the Flowers Bloom by Quietfire Design at all.



To create the above card, I made the amaryllis (you can see how to make it with this YouTube Video) - the only difference is I used yellow embossing powder in for my pollen.







I also made a black frame for it by nesting rectangle dies and popping them up with foam tape.  With my new Tim Holtz stamp platform tool, I got it lined right between the flower and frame. 



I guess instead of flowers, I didn't wait for new craft supplies.  :)


Thanks for looking and I hope you are having a great start to 2018!

I'm going to try to get back to playing in some of my favorite challenges this year.
