Say it with flowers.

Hi everyone, I was asked to make an anniversary card that was a simple floral one, preferably red!
They didn't really want butterflies, but an accident with some distress ink meant I had to cover it up!

I've used this die a lot lately but it is one of my all time favourites!
I've coloured the stem with distress markers and the red is diecut from a scrap of watercoloured paper, and I do mean a scrap!!

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.

It may be simple but it is lovely. It's always great when you can save a card and you did it great!

Unlike you I haven't used these flowers in a while - what a shame as they are so beautiful! They make your CAS card shine! I think the little butterflies are the perfect finishing touch!

Beautiful card Cathy, love that flower die cut. One of those dies I should have bought, was sold out each time then just never got to it.
Its so delicate and perfect with your watercolour piece.

I can see why this daisy die is such a favourite as it is extremely pretty Cathy and I love the watercoloured paper for the flower heads, and the cute little butterflies look great too. x
