What beautiful weather!

Hasn't the weather has been amazing! My garden is really going into blossom overdrive with everything showing off and the pots around the garden all trying to outshine one another.

This Sunday starts a new challenge at InternationalArt and Soul and the theme this week is Flowers. So, please show us your treasured flowers so that we all can enjoy your beautiful Creations.  Please join us INTAAS.

I made this card or big tag for a friend for with her birthday in mind. I cut the shape with a Tattered Lace Tag Die and covered it with paper from the Kanban Apricot Dream pad.  I cut and made the flowers with the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Bloom die. The rest of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the wired large pearl strands are from Anna Marie Designs. The little birthday sentiment tag is by Sue Wilson and underneath all the flowers is the big Cheery Lynn swirl die in gold glitter paper and little leaves from Marianne Dies.  I hope she likes it.


Sadly, a friend of my husbands passed away and I don't usually post sympathy cards to my blog but I'm sure the sentiment can easily be changed to something more appropriate. It's always difficult with what to say at times like these but Ive kept it light with using brown and ivory and a Memory Box poppy.  I generated the sentiment myself and popped it on a Spellbinders label die.

WOW! Your tag is gorgeous! (I'm sure the card you posted is, too... but I just see a big white square, no photo).
