Di at Pixies Crafty Workshop recently featured this card. I loved it right off the hop and imediately started thinking about my own flowers. They are getting antsy trapped in those glass jars on my desk...they want out!
Besides, that flower ticker at the top of my blog needs adjusting!
Di's card inspired me to create some floral cards of my own. While rummaging about in the bunkie (summer Art Studio...lol), I found this NBUS Memory Box frame die... Massa Leaf Frame Die. I thought it would make a great frame for my flower. I inked it up with three shades of Invild Bolme Prima chalk inks. I used 2 greens and an ivory ink. They dry almost instantly so are easy to work with. I like the way the inking turned out.

This is the final card of my first 50 cards made from my stash. I was on a consumables spending freeze...no paper, ribbon, embellishments, chipboard, stickers, twine...if it was consumable, I did not buy it. Instead, I shopped my stash. It was fun and surprisingly easy to do
On the other hand, stamps and dies are non consumable and were fair game...but I did not really purchase many of those either. I just got in the habit of not shopping as much and just really enjoyed it. I have challenged myself to make 50 more...but will just track my progress by adding the card number to my titles.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
2. Crafty Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes
3. Die Cutting Divas - Anything Goes
