Flowers are forever

Hello again - it's me, Ky. How many times have you gotten or seen a great bouquet of flowers and immediately wanted to preserve them forever? Drying flowers can be a pain, so naturally, I thought putting flowers on a card would be an easy way to celebrate a birthday!

This card uses Gina K Design's Eclectic Summer and Eclectic Summer Sayings.

The twine, ribbon and button are from my stash. I couldn't resist tearing the paper a little... Dragging out my Copic markers to color the image to match the papers...

Or rolling an edge, and I just *had* to use Tim Holtz's tiny attacher. Then I needed to distress it, and throw in some brads. Oh and use an old button... Tee hee! I get quite carried away!

I hope you are creating along with us. Share how you've breathed new life into your old images and supplies. We can't wait to check your projects out - so be sure to link us up!

Eva will have more tomorrow to whet your appetite!

Ta for now,


  1. You didn't get carried away, you created something GORGEOUS! Love it, Ky!

  2. I love this- the colors and the distressing are perfect!! :)


Thanks for stopping by - we would love to know what you think!
