Flower Power

I find myself over and over creating very simple cards without a lot of embellishments. For this card, my only embellishment is a little bit of thread wound around the main image.

This image is from a Stampin' Up! set I haven't used in ages. While this blossom could be many different kinds of flowers, I've made it a Brown-eyed Susan as it is a personal fav of mine.  The color is Pearl Ex mixed with Future Floor Polish and painted onto the image.  It gives a little shimmer.

I am entering this card into the following charming challenges:

Papertake Weekly - In the Garden

Art with No Boundaries - Fit to be Tied

Hooked on Crafts - Flowers

I hope your day blooms with promise, prosperity and passion!


  1. Love this flower Shar, brilliant idea wrapping the twine around too, great detail!
