Layered Flower

Hello Everyone,

This is a quick post today. I have been trying to return to a normal routine of making my cards and then posting them in a timely manner. It seems like that is not happening. Since I returned home from Christmas vacation, things have just been getting in my way and preventing me from my crafts. Well, anyway, I am not going to let things discourage me and I will do my best to devote as much time to crafting as possible.

This card is an inspiration from the card that Shari Carroll did a few weeks ago. To see her video, please check here. The stamps that I used are all Hero Arts: Antique Flower Background S5264, Old Letter Writing S4878, Blossom Art CL495, and Clear Design Birthday Messages CL139. I distressed the flower with Scattered straw ink and wild honey and the leaves were distressed with Shabby Shutters. The center of the flower was distressed with Vintage Photo and then for the finishing touches I added brown pearls of various sizes.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments. Take care and have a great day.

Hi Sue
I think the added touch of the pearls lifts the flower, this is a wonderful card.

gorgeous card Sue, I am making crinkley layered flowers right now while cooking dinner (well its all in the oven just waiting for it to cook). This layered flower is gorgeous and the center pearls have a beautiful seed effect! Thank you for your kind words today, you are an inspiration too! Hugs, Nat :)

Sue- love your take on the card Shari did in her video- the center of brown pearls are wonderful and so is your masking job! I'm in the same groove since Christmas.....not much time to get any crafting done let alone post on my blog.

Hugs, Anne
