Beautiful Botanical!

This is one the one I have been waiting for!! I knew it was going to be a challenge Cathy at Moxie Fab would post and I have had ideas swirling with papers and stamps for weeks! Fanatical About Botanical! is so up my alley with my love for vintagey goodness and anything with flowers! (including that really horribly tacky wall paper from the 70's with giant metallic flowers against black walls!) So...for my first entry into this awesome challenge I did a bright and fun botanical card!

Pretty cute! I love this BG paper it is just too sweet! I am in desperate need of a new pair of fussy cut scissors and because of this the edges of my flowers are a bit distressed but for this card that was no totally went with the design! So YAY for crappy scissors!! It's blah here weather wise so no good lighting and the colors are a bit bright than they are IRL (if you have this paper in your stash the colors are bright and fun but not has highlighter looking as in my photos!) And I got this new yummo trim from Fine and Dandy by Jen Allyson...LOVEEEE them!! I have more cards for this challenge that are just not put together yet, check back for some more botanical amazingness!! And make sure you check out the post at Moxie Fab because the inspiration Cathy has posted is just beyond words! Lots of love:)

  3. Hiya - What a cute card! You always make the BEST cards!! BTW - When you find a really nice pair of 'fussy' cutting scissors that are great for detail, let me know...I need a pair and just cant' seem to find one I LOVE!!

    OH and guess what? The sun is back -- Came back about a half hour ago after two nice rain storms with MUCH rain for my flowers!! IT was way better than another HOT and HUMID day...I love Summer, but not the humid days...they kill me!!

    Take care and Happy Crafting....! Kiss those sweetie kiddos for me too!
