Soft Colors of Spring!

 May Flowers 

For the Ways to Use it Challenge at SCS the challenge hostess ask for cards with flowers. I almost don’t know how to make a card without flowers.

My heart easel congrats card can be used for a variety of occasions. I may use it as a graduation card, or perhaps I'll change the sentiment to Happy Birthday. I can never have enough Birthday cards.

Card Ingredients: Heart shapes die cut with Sizzix Bigz Die "Heart Bag",
The Rose is Sizzix/Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone, a dollar doily stamped on vellum and fussy cut, 


Certainly Celery, Bermuda Bay, Regal Rose, Neutral of Choice Dessert Option: Words of Wisdom, Encouragement or Best Wishes

I started by stamping a Penny Black Letter Background on white card stock, embossing in white embossing powder, daubing with Tim Holtz' Distress Stains in tattered rose and shabby shutters and mounting rectangles. The Verve sentiment was stamped onto vellum in white ep and backed with white card stock.
