{Paper Smooches} Thanks

Thank you for putting up with my silence for the past few days! We celebrated our son's fourth birthday this past weekend and I'm trying to catch up on so many things. I will find some time to blog all about that at the end of the week. In the meantime, Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches Blog today! It features solid and outline petals and a sentiment from Daisies & Paisleys which was released earlier this month. This set is so much fun to play with because you can make anything with it and no two cards will look the same! My flowers are more like poinsettias than daisies but in complementary colours, they can fit any theme and in this case, a retro masculine thank you. First, I stamped the solid flowers and then offset the outline petals. Then I punched holes and inserted large eyelets in the centres of each flower. Finally, I placed gemstones inside those eyelets. The entire panel is popped up with foam tape on top of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by today! I will have more for you tomorrow. :)

Emily, this is so pretty! I love how you turned what would be the typical flower petal! Absolutely a fantastic card, but I would expect nothing less from you as everything you create is simply fantastic! I hope you enjoyed your sons 4th birthday! My son turns 5 next month and I just can't believe how time really flies!
