Playing in Paradise #63

Well, I needed a a sympathy card and I'm a huge fan of flowers and found this particular challenge at  Scrapbooker's Paradise through Debbie... bless her heart.  She is so sweet to always come and visit my blog.  Go check out her blog at Debbie's Dash of This and That, she has a lot of beautiful creations in there... such an inspiration!

The theme is all about using flowers and well... I have tons in my stash that I need to use up.  I'm currently concentrating on using up small silk flowers I bought ages ago for $1 a bundle... so I bought a lot of different colors.

  • Card size - 7.25" x 5.5"
  • Cheery Lynn - butterfly die cut
  • Cuttlebug - embossing
  • Sizzix - leaves
  • Spellbinder - Fleur de lis Square
  • Cricut cartridge: Home Decor - flourish
  • Sentiment is a stamp
  • Silk flowers have 8 layers each and painted with glitter

Made also for sketch 3 of RAQ's 4-18 Card Sketch Challenge hosted by SandyPalmer
