In keeping with my goal to use up 365 flowers this year, I thought it was time to show another card of blooms. The flower ticker at the top of my blog is my reminder to stick to my goal, and I must say it is spurring me on to keep creating cards that showcase them.
I bought these flowers at Michael's, a short while before starting my consumables freeze. They are NBUS (never before used stash) but stash never the less. Old or new, it feels good to use up some of my flower stash. So 14 more flowers added to the ticker today!!!
The tag is from a Michael's clearance after Valentines Day. It is from a package of four tags that I found for 80% off. Now that is a sale!
I managed to use a couple of snippets (the pink hessian, the hot pink border and the kraft mat behind it) so I will popping by the playground to visit my pals at Pixies Crafty Workshop.
Here is a bit of a side view that perhaps shows the depth of the floral bouquet. Some of the flowers are two layers deep...others just single flowers.
Card Base and envelope - 5 1/2 inch square textured card from my stash
DP - Hip Hip Hooray AC from my stash
Card Stock - snippet of Kraft from my stash
Fiber - snippet of hot pink hessian from my stash

****************This is card #21 of 50. I am on a consumables spending freeze until I have made 50 cards (Sook Wang tape and heavy weight card stock are exempt).***************
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge - must cover card with paper
3. Use Your Stuff - Patterned Paper #138
4. The Butterfly Challenge - Bingo; butterflies, diecuts, designer paper...this is stretching it a bit as I did not use the diecuts to create this tag...but the manufacturer did!
