Spiral Flowers :)


I simply *had* to create another card using the Card Patterns sketch for this week! And hope you love this sketch, cuz you'll be seeing it again! LOL! My friend Elizabeth has issued a challenge for us using this sketch again, and I'll be taking her up on it!

This card makes use of some FABULOUS new spiral flowers I learned how to make from THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL on Rae Barthel's blog. You will be seeing more of these, too. ;) For this card, I started with a Dark Chocolate base and added on a strip of NEW Jillibean Soup Old World Cabbage Stew - Caraway Seeds paper...this paper is so super-sweet and pretty! The edge was punched using the SU Decorative Scallop Border Punch. I wrapped some Aqua Mist (PTI) Satin ribbon around the card and tied a bow. The same patterned paper was used for a tiny spiral flower, which was added to the center of the bow. :) The "Thinking of You" sentiment is from the Unity Bevy of Butterflies stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed this card, and hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
