Hearts and Flowers

Hi, wet weather has kept us indoors this weekend. A good excuse to stay in my craft room!

I used punches to make this card, which means, I used lots of snippets and left overs. Except for the red, I had to cut a strip from a new piece of card for the hearts! Spent ages looking for a scrap first though!

So, I'm entering the Snippets Playground again over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. It's great fun, shame when I have to pack up and go home!

This will also be my 2nd entry into this month's challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique. If you live in Australia please join in.
The theme is love and here is the delicious looking cupcake inspiration photo.
 
 
Materials used: various punches;  Stampin Up square lattice embossing folder; cardstock, bling & sentiment sticker from stash.
 
Thanks for looking :)

  1. This would have to be one of my 'all time' fave embossing folders (and grrrr I don't own it and only get to drool over it). What a wonderful card Cathy... you must live near me because it hasn't stopped raining for 2 weeks blaaaahhh.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Scrapbook Boutique this month!

  2. Hi Therese, my sister bought me the ef for Christmas, prior to that I used to use hers all the time..(guess she got sick of me having it all the time!!) I'm in northern NSW, 2 hrs west of Byron, in the ranges, so we get plenty of rain though not as much as the coast does...some sunshine would be lovely :)
