happy tuesday :) i made this for 3 different challenges.
1) TKJ the theme spring
2) PTW the theme mom or a girl thing
3) C&C color scheme..(butter/yellow, rose/pale red,pale green and lavender
for my card i used kraft cardstock for the base. (purchase at the kraft outlet.( theres a link on my side bar)
 my flowers i made, using glassine bags (purchase at the kraft outlet).
i used my cricut and mini monograms cartridge and cut between 5 and 8 scallop circles per flower. used my piercer and punched a hole in the centers added a brad. then colored them in with tim holtz distress stains ( concorde grape, broken china and spun sugar and wild honey) .
the flower stems are raffia colored with distress in ( peeled paint)
the leaves are paper raffia ( purchase at the kraft outlet) i colored them with distress stain (peeled paint)
for the flower pots i used my cricut and walk in my garden cartridge (border feature) then added a SU stamp.
the butterflies are MS punch
the sentiment is a clear  visions stamp ( theres a link on my side bar)
paper is prima.
