I have totally loved the crocheted flower trend, but I am not at ALL skilled in crocheting! :) Luckily, I have a (VERY!) talented friend who does happen to be quite skilled at crocheting! On a side note, Amanda has been my friend since we were in middle school! We are both now about to be Thirty and Flirty and Thriving (my birthday is one week from today, actually!!), so it's been a while. What a sweet, godly woman and a wonderful mom she's turned out to be.
Anyway, I had Amanda create a sampling of crocheted flowers for me to create with myself AND to give away on my blog (to YOU, my friends!). If you would like to follow Amanda's projects on Facebook (or contact her to order any of her wonderful creations... I can tell you first-hand that they are top notch!), go to Knot Another Project. :)
As for my card, I used the new PTI color Fine Linen. I can tell I'm gonna love this color! I embossed an SU plate onto a second layer of Fine Linen, and inked it up in white ink for definition and "color" (not really color if it's white, huh?). I tied some Melon Berry satin ribbon around the embossed part of the card and tied a side knot. I added the crocheted flower (this one happens to perfectly match Fine Linen!) with a Melon Berry button in the center. The sentiment at the bottom, stamped in Dark Chocolate, is also from PTI.
Wanna win SEVEN assorted crocheted flowers made by Amanda? Thought so. :) Enter a comment here telling me something wonderful about being 30 (if you aren't 30 yet yourself, you can still tell me what you think is wonderful about 30!). I'll draw a random winner (and perhaps share a few of my favorite comments!) Friday afternoon or evening!
