For You (Year of Flowers)
I wish these photos were better but .... I wanted to make a few cards with the Garden Variety II set from Papertrey Ink - along with the Year of Flowers Collection set. May's flower is Lilies of the Valley and we know how much I love the larger version of that stamp. I used the Seed Packet Frame 2 die and stamped it then used the Year of Flowers Titles Mini Stamp set to stamp in the "Lilies of the Valley" at the top. I used some Anna Griffin patterned paper I still have along with some cardstock I embossed with the swiss dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I searched around and found a wee label from Making Memories that I could stamp with "for you". Now I know you can see some black ribbon and some polka dotted ribbon but you cannot see some Smash tape (black polka dot) that's there too - but you can see it in the next card. And finally I used some Copic markers to color in the image of the flowers.
I'll wrap up here saying that I have such a hard time tying those pretty bows (and they certainly don't survive an envelope well) - but they're so pretty it can be worth the effort every one in a while LOL
have a good one!
