Black & Lime Flowers

Hi, I made a few of these buckle diecuts at my sister's recently. I wasn't sure how I'd use them, but I thought they made great flowers on this lime card.

I coloured the white diecuts black with my tombow, and the small flowers are punched out of snippets of white and lime.

I'm entering 3 challenges.

At Less is More it's a colour challenge using lime & black.

Using snippets means I can visit the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

And the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is turning 4.  Definitely something to celebrate!

Materials used: Memory Box buckle die; EK Success flower punch; Memory Box Key Lime card base; Tombow marker; brads and sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting today :)


  1. Wow, brilliant use of snippets - and perfect for LIM as well Cathy. Love the colours together - dedication to duty there, colouring the die cuts :)

    Have a lovely day!

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. What a great idea to turn your buckles into flowers with the addition of the central element. I may have to use some of mine this way.
    Super card.
    Thanks so much
