I Love Flowers!

Hi!

I've been playin' with a new stamp from a set called Butterfly and Flowers from Hero Arts and I love it!

I've created a couple more cards with the same stamp but you'll have to wait for the Hero Arts hostess blog hop to see them! 

Speaking of the hop, we've had to change the dates, so please keep an eye out for an announcement soon. It will NOT take place next week as planned. BUT - have no fear, it WILL happen this month!

So, back to my card. It's a small one, measuring only 4 x 31/4 inches.

 

I love how the dotty pattern shows through the vellum layer! I added a bit of string and a white embossed sentiment from the same set.

I hope you're having a fun, crafty week! Our weather is suppose to FINALLY get back to normal with warmer temps by this weekend! It's kinda sad when you're looking forward to 30 degrees but it's going to feel amazing after all the below zero temps we've had!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you know how much I appreciate your visits and comments! ♥

Hello Barb
It looks so darn cut; I love it, the dotty card makes all the difference juxtaposing with the vellum.
