Lace, and doilies, and flowers...oh my! (Giveaway)

Hello friends!  Be sure to sign up for the GIVEAWAY shown below by clicking  HERE:
I got a few fun items in the mail yesterday!  One was a die that cuts out the spiral to make a flower like this fast (the leaves are a made from a leaf punch, then a stylus was used to make the veins.  I sanded and inked them after that):
I got the greatest tag die ever from Magnolia's Doohicky line!  Here's what one looks like after inking, distressing,  and stamping:
I used my Copic inks to color the flowerpot, Ranger Distressing inks to ink the tags and doilies and images, ribbon from my stash (either Archivers or Sharon's Crop Studio (our local Scrapbook store)) Tim Holz papers, my sewing machine,  and the stamps are inspired stamps (the flowerpot is a stamp off of the COMFORT set and the phrase is off of the EYE IS ON THE SPARROW.  I also used flourishes as background for these from the FRUITFUL FLOURISHES set.

Here is the completed 6x6 shabby-chic card:
Thanks so much for taking time out of your day to spend here with me!
I have some Easter Cards to share with you next time!
Until then, Be the Blessing!


  1. Gorgeous card. I love the tags and flower too:)
