Simple & Sweet

Do you ever feel like the day just rolls by too fast? I do! I barely caught notice that the sun was going down a few minutes ago. I like to take my pictures outside, so I had to think of a quick card to throw together. This card was very quick and easy to make. It also only used scraps of patterned paper that I found lying on the floor of my scrappy space. You can't say I don't recycle now. I love these flowers since they come shaded from the center which is often a little bit of a messy hassle to achieve if you're doing it yourself. I also love that don't need a brad or button to finish them off.
Here's what I did:
The card base is textured paper from Bazzill and is cut to A2. The patterned paper is all from BasicGrey. The blue polka dot strips are cut to .25" wide and the floral strip is 1" wide. I then used my black journaling pen to add faux stitching. The three white flowers and leaves are Prima and are adhered with glue dots. And...that's it!

Hey Laura!
Recently I was tagged and in return I have to tag 7 others. I find you to be a very interesting person. You are funny and charming. If you don't mind, would you please participate and list 7 random things about yourself. Also, I guess you are suppose to tag 7 others. If you do,please list their names on your blog. This makes me nervous because I am a terrible at asking ppl. to do this. I would make a awful saleswoman! Thank you for your time Laura:)
