It's Special!

Time for Just Us Girls Challenge and
Vicki is Hosting our Word Week.
Our Gallery is going to be full of beautiful cards - 
shame we can't smell them.
We welcome our May Guest Designer
Deborah Wheeler!

This card is special because it is for 
my granddaughter who's turning 30
and the flowers featured here are Tim Holtz Wildflowers
I purchased from her Christmas gift certificate
(and you haven't seen the last of them yet) ...
Chosen colours are blue tones - her favourite.
When this goes live we will be
celebrating two birthday's and 
a baby shower. Then Mother's Day Sunday
with one daughter travelling from North Queensland
for all the celebrations.
Added a texture plate die to the background
adding my floral arrangement.
The 30 is an old CB die adhered to a
cross stitched nesting arch with
matching cotton tucked behind it and a
punched heart to finish.

Can't wait to see the Gallery full of flowers.
Our Guest Deborah and the Team have gone all out
  floral so hope you will too and
add to Our Gallery. You could be our
Chic of the Week!

UPDATES! Sending this over to
Color Hues for their

Thanks for visiting and commenting.

LOVE your mix of beautiful wildflowers, Ina. The colours are gorgeous, especially the deep shade of blue on the largest flower --- wow! So pretty against the embossed background. You might want to add to Color Hues challenge (blue and tan). Your card would be perfect for that. xx

I'm a huge fan of die cut flowers, and I've never seen these lovelies before! They are gorgeous and so is that background! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!

I recently got that die set, Ina, and I love what you did with it. I'm sure your granddaughter did too. Since it has a number on it, may I suggest you also send it to The Flower Challenge.

Julie B said...

The texture behind the die cuts looks fab and really brings the design together. You sound to have had a busy weekend there Ina, hope it went smoothly and thanks for sharing at Color Hues. :)

I just love how you paired those pretty flowers and stems all together for a wonderful birthday card for your DGD! It's gorgeous!
