Project description

For this card, I used the lovely images from Crafty Secrets', Birds and Blossoms and Little Blessings. The flowers include a stamp from Heartfelt Creations, Arianna Blooms Bouquet (HCPC 3609), which I colored, distressed, fussy cut, layered and glittered. It's in the lower right hand corner.

The background paper from Crafty Secrets is overlaid with a floral print vellum from World Win papers, a previous sponsor. The flowers are from Prima, and Gloria, and (don't tell) the Dollar Store. It's topped off with some Stickles and a couple of floral pins. For the inside of the card, I used the Heartfelt Creations, Arianna Blooms Bouquet (HCPC 3609) to make background paper and then pulled a page from the Crafty Secrets Birds and Botanicals Images and Journal Notes, stamped with a stamp from the Birthday Blessings set by Our Daily Bread Designs.
