Another Trio of Flowers...Feel Better Soon

Today's card uses up a lot of leftovers.  The flowers are leftovers from yesterday's card.  The frames are scraps that have been sitting in my folder filled with white scraps SO LONG, that I could not remember WHAT DIE I USED FOR THE FRAME!! ...
 Hmmmm...a scalloped, stitched frame...and layered( I KNEW that it HAD to come that way to have layered it)??  Well, after MUCH searching, I found it.... a W PLUS 9 frame die in a set with sunshine and clouds...but what's SO COOL is having scraps, that, even though so old, and been hanging around  so long, finally find a use on a card!!   Doesn't help with my tendency to hoard scraps...as with evidence of this card, hoarding scraps isn't a bad thing:):)!!  I used paint chips for the flowers, and had them match the flowered paper that I had purchased at AC Moore and used as the background for the flowers...I thought this paper was SO PRETTY!!  I layered the flowers, and used a dark brown paint chip for the stems and leaves...a little unconventional, but matched the leaves on the background paper.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, stamped with versamark on vellum and white embossed. Here's a close up...
I think I'm going to keep these flower dies on my desk...more fun to come:)!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  3. I love, LOVE this card! I searched and couldn't find the scalloped die. Actually I found it but was sold out everywhere. I finally found one on eBay in Australia. Yes, I bought it. It is such a versatile die that I'm sure to use over and over. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Don't you love using up those previously cut pieces?!? Btw, on screen (mine anyway) the dark brown reads olive green. Had you not pointed it out I would have thought both the background paper and the stems and leaves of the die cuts were a beautiful olive green :-)
