Fancy Flowers

I did a fairly quick design using a masking technique and the Fancy Flowers set from Gina K. Designs. I used all inks from Gina K. Designs too.


Once I had the stamping done I then die cut the focal panel with a beautiful die from Gina Marie. I just love the edging on that die. I then added some black and white twine and placed it on a white card base.


I am entering this in the Double D Challenge which calls for the use of twine on the card.

I hope all had a great Easter. We certainly did and especially enjoyed playing Pass The Baby. I think everyone took turns holding Jack. You just know he was the hit of the party! 

Sorry I was a bit slow on making any cards or blog posts. Apparently I over did it with my one arm when cleaning and scrubbing and it has been really bothering me. Of course, having snow storms doesn't help matters either. But it is slowly getting better especially after I use it for a while. In the morning is the worst time for it hurting.

Well, thanks for you visit and I so appreciate all the wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

What an absolutely delightful spring-like card! I love the blooms, the colors, the design and yes - that beautifully die-cut panel too! Well done, take care of that arm!

So Jack must be doing well--what a blessing! I have tons of dies, but if I walked into a store with that one I'd buy it! Gorgeous card!

What a lovely card Verna! That little cluster of brightly colored flowers is so sweet in the lacy frame. The twine is a perfect finishing touch too! How wonderful to have a new little baby in the family to love and hold. <3

Beautiful card and pretty colors. I must go and investigate that Gina Marie die, it is great. I'm so happy Jack is doing so well and is okay with being passed around. Sounds like he is a happy baby.

I LOVE this. Your bright colors just pop against the white background, and that pretty die cut panel is really perfect. Great use of the twine too!

Leslie Miller said...

I do love all that color on white! Pretty die edge. Just the right size to fill your card, and the twine makes it perfect for the Double D challenge. I'm glad you had a chance to play along. You know they say housework can't hurt you, but why take the chance? Heard that somewhere. I hope your arm continues to get better.
