Flower Friend

I took delivery of the Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz which I'm sure you are all familiar with, and that I am very pleased to now own. So I have been going mental making flowers. The one on this card was inspired by a lady on you tube that does THIS tutorial for making a similar flower.

Here is my card...

I love the sentiment from the Stampin Up set "The Nicest Things" and thought it would go well on a tag for the challenge at Annabelle Stamps - "Say it with Tag".

The background is papers from the Kaiser "Utopia" collection 6" paper pad, and I've simply torn stips and rolled back the edges, highlighting them with a little Tangerine Tango ink to match in with the card base.

This is such a bright, flowery card that I thought it would suit the challenges at both the Scrapbook Sisters Spring Flowers challenge and the Southern Girls Flowers Challenge .

Hope you like it too. Keep an eye out for more of those gorgeous Tim Holtz flowers in the future. I'd also like to thank Nicole at the Craft Queen shop for the beautiful torquise ribbon on this card. I had ordered other ribbons from her and they arrived beautifully packaged and tied up with this ribbon. It's always the way isn't it, the one you didn't choose is the first one you use!
