Congratulations Blooms


Hi everyone, I hope the new year has started well for you.
I'm on holidays for a few weeks but am not planning much at this stage, lots of rest I think sounds good!

I was recently asked to be a guest at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge and was delighted to accept!
It's such a fun challenge.

I went with the middle row across floral, free and sparkle.
It was a chance to use a new floral die that I have seen used a lot, as well as a new to me border die.
I was inspired by this card on pinterest by Karen Orme.

My sparkle is a bit hard to see in the pic so here's a close up - I used white shimmer card for the lattice.

The design team has some wonderful inspiration for you so I hope you get the chance to play along.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Make My Monday, something new

Mix it Up Challenge, anything goes and optional no stamping

Dies: Paper Rose stitched rectangles frames die - lattice (I shortened it); The Greetery border die; Spellbinders be bold blooms;
Other: Waffle Flower elegant sentiments stamp; Couture Creations white shimmer card; versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; coloured card from stash.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

Beautiful card Cathy. Love the lattice and the pretty arrangement of the Be Bold Blooms (don't you just love that set - I do). I have made several cards with this die set.

Mmm, this is like a beautiful fresh bouquet, Cathy! I love the colors, the border, the schparkle, and that pretty lattice panel to ground the flowers! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

Cathy... those blooms in those colors are fabulous! Feels a bit like the Scottish Highlands with the heather in bloom. LOVE YOUR CARD. Thank you so much for guesting with us at Tic Tac Toe this week!

What beautiful die cut flowers Cathy, and I love the die cut lattice you have placed behind them, and the Nordic Frame is gorgeous and highlighted brilliantly with the purple card behind the cut-outs in the frame, and a lovely coordinating stamped sentiment too..a gorgeous card! x

Lovely colors on the flowers and I like how you put them on the lattice. The border die is on my wish list now!
