Flower Pot Card


I never do challenges....don't know why....but I was so taken with the flower pot challenge currently on SCS that I had to give it a try. The card stock colors are Really RUst, Whisper White, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss and Garden Green. All the flowers and leaves were sponged on the edges . The flowers came from the Daisies 2 Sizzix die, and two of them are SU cut and emboss flowers from the current catalog. I used the scalloped border, a hole punch, and a cuttlebug folder on the pot. I used brads and pearls to highlight the centers of some of the flowers, some sheer ribbon for a bow around the pot which actually holds the card together. It's a pocket card, you see. Second photo shows the card out of the pocket and the last photo is a picture of the back which I even tried to make nice! This was a fun card to do but took forever. It's windy here and chilly but my purple plum is in bloom as well as the daffodils and hyacinths. Spring really is here folks! God bless.
