Get well flowers

Hi, it's finally cooled down a little tonight, it was so hot today that I had to rummage through my wardrobe for my sarong! Hubby has been getting the swimming pool levels right after winter, so if it keeps up we'll be jumping in soon!

I made this card for a few challenges.

At Scrapbook Boutique, the theme is Spring is in the Air and to use this photo as inspiration.

The challenge closes at the end of this month, so if you live in Australia there's a little bit of time left to join in.

At Addicted to CAS, the challenge is to create a Get Well card.

Addicted to Stamps & More has a Clean & Simple challenge.

Materials used: Memory Box Prim Poppies & Petal Party dies; Stampin Up Square lattice embossing folder; tombows; foam dots; bling & sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)


  1. Oh wow, what a simply perfect card Cathy, beautiful dies too! But sssssssshhh don't mention swimming pools 'cos Mrs A will be on the first plane clutching her rubber ring and cossie with tools to assemble a high board. I have enough trouble keeping her out of the Playground duck pond :(

    Hugs, Di xx

  2. The flowers look like they have thrown an arm around each other ... or is it just me LOL!! Mxx

    1. Hahaha, they do. GR suggested I add more green to the other stem and now that you mention it they do look like arms LOL. If I make another one I'll leave the bud on the sentiment side only :) Cathy x

  3. A beautiful CAS card Cathy. The embossed background and flowers are perfect.
