Life's Sweet Fragrance

I have been so busy lately, I haven't had any time to just play, so I decided I needed to challenge myself to just have fun and not worry about deadlines and DT projects for one day! It worked and out I came with this beauty! I'm playing along with one of my favorite challenges too...Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and you need to use a floral image...I've definitely got something to use for this one!

I don't know what your crafty obsession is, but these days for me, it's My Mind's Eye paper and Flourishes stamps. I have stacks of MME 6x6 pads and I've purchased quite a bit of the newest Flourishes stamps and haven't had the time to ink them up...and that has got to change! So, here's one from last month's release called Mother's Words of Wisdom. I colored these gorgeous flowers with my Copics and fussy cut the image by hand. It's backed by a wreath shape cut with the Spellbinders Picot Circles dies.

Although there are some great sentiments with the image set, I needed this card for another occasion, so I paired it up with this pretty sentiment from the Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 set! I popped it up in the middle to resemble a banner.

I used some of my favorite lacey look papers from the Miss Caroline collection by MME and added soem sheer ribbon and a big bow, some pearls in pink and white and a sweet two layer butterfly topped with a pearl body!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
