TODAY’S CARD
I was stamping in the light of SPRING.  Wanted the card to reflect light springy colors and you know it had to have a flower……or two.
          001
I first embossed the three circles on a strip of smooth Whisper White card stock.  Then punched three circles making them just a tad smaller than the embossed circles and using matching cardstock with the corresponding flowers – Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise.  I then added a strip of Tempting Turquoise down the center topping off the left side with a bow.  The charm attached to the bow is actually a coffee pot……..looked like a watering can to me!  *smiles*
Looking closer ~
        038
Notice the buttons for the flower centers with the thin strips of card stock run through the button holes.  The thin strips where then curled with a skewer.
The inside ~
                      003
If you look closely you can see how each flower petal was curled up on the ends and kind of twisted to one side.  Not the best picture I know.  With such warm days, the fog here sets in until about noon or so and then I have lost my picture taking spot.  Grrrrrrr!
I hope your first weekend of Spring is a good one!  Thank you so much for finding the time to visit!
Lots of crafty hugs to all!
