Blissful Blooms - CAS

Having a December birthday means that I have to make cards for an online group of crafting ladies who also have December birthdays. I look forward to the exchange of cards! I made four of these cards but will need to make more using other papers. I may add a sentiment on the front of this card, but because I am submitting this to a challenge, I omitted it for now. My design was inspired by the challenge.

On a panel of navy cardstock, I stamped some
tiny flowers in navy ink then adhered the panel to a white card base. A strip of DSP was adhered and then flowers were cut from a sheet of DSP and popped up with foam for dimension. Sequins were adhered to finish the card. A bit of clear glitter glue was added to the center of each flower. The inside was decorated with a fussy cut flower.

The card is being submitted to Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #99:

  3. Very pretty card!! Love the flowers!! Thank you for joining us at Fab Friday!!

  4. Very pretty colors! I love when people use DSP elements cut out! It makes the DSP that much more versatile instead of just always being a flat layer! Nicely done and really shows your fussy cutting skills! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday
