Flower Power!

The Fashionettes are showing their "Flower Power" and that can be floral stamping and or handmade flowers.  Just remember there has to be some form of stamping as Digi images are not allowed.  There is a prize from Cottage Crafts and always the "Top Three," so  come join in the fun at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!   For more inspiration and a lovely bouquet for the eyes, stop by FSC to see what my super talented DT Sisters have gone and done!  Simon Says Stamp and Show current challenge is "No Rules," so I will link this up there! 
For my card, I decided to go pretty and feminine!  Not so easy for me as I am always tempted to add that little bit of grunge, but for this, I went pretty!  The background was stamped with Archival Coffee and distressed with Frayed Burlap, as was the smaller flower.  The two flower pieces were cut using a Spellbinders die and I did trim the pink one, so it would be a little smaller.  These come in three sizes and I wanted something in between.  All petal edges were distressed, you know I had to!  The Woman is from Hero Arts and I inked up some shimmery paper, starting with Spun Sugar in the center and working out with Antique Linen, Pumice Stone and then shaded with Frayed Burlap! 

Now the pretty little flower trim was gifted to me by my friend,  Lucy, of True Colours!  Yes, she is as sweet as can be!  I cut some of the trim into segments to embellish the bottom!  This is so pretty!  Thank you again, Lucy! 

Well I have been busy getting some things caught up DT wise as next week, I will be busy getting some food taken care of for the house sitter we will have.  Over the Labor Day weekend we are making a trip to visit our son for his birthday.  Oh and I will be having a quick visit with another blogger friend that I actually knew before blogging, so that adds to the excitement!  Anyway, I do so appreciate your visits and will be visiting you all really soon!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Gorgeous card Terry! At first I thought you had used actual lace on your card and then I noticed you stamped it (of course, I should have known when it's made by you!). Romantic and feminine creation! Enjoy your trips to your son and friend. Ira x

Such a great design - I love how the large flower in the middle and the bottom flower border both create such a nice frame for the quote/image.

Lovely, soft card Terry!

Have fun visiting family and friends!

Julia S-W said...

I so know what you mean about not resisting the grunge!! However, this is soooo pretty and I love those embellishments at the bottom. I wouldn't be able to resist those if I saw them in a shop - a real sucker for small, shiny and beautiful that's me! Love the stamped background too.
Have a wonderful trip and I look forward to your next wonderful creation.
