Sweet Sister

I made this card for my Sister and was able to even hand deliver it, I bought these dies at the Scrapbook convention and was waiting to use them until my sisters card.  I started cutting out all these shapes with yellow papers, thinking I would use them for the flowers when I decided to check out the video on how to put them together because I couldn't figure it out and realized those were the bases for the tiny flowers you make, so here I was with all these yellow pieces I had cut out, I put them aside and started cutting them all over again in green this time, shaping them so that the flowers would be puffed up in a circle, I still wanted to use yellow for the bigger flowers so I cut the little flowers out of purple, after gluing them all on I took a extra fine purple sharpie and added center dots to all the flowers.

The basket die cut was bought at the same time, I did a touch of inking to the basket. There are little leaves die cuts too and I cut a few of them to put on the end of the branches. Then I started thinking of what flower I wanted to use for the bigger flowers and thought, I should just start shaping those pieces I had already cut to see if I could make a flower from them, and I think they turned out pretty cute. I added a couple of them to the bottom of the basket to kind of ground it. I also punched some bigger leaves out of a different color green paper to go with the bigger flowers.
 I shaped the basket with my biggest stylus and added some foam tape behind so that it rounded out in the center and glued the sides directly to the paper.  Added the tag and gem and I was done.

I imagine the only thing your sister appreciated more than receiving the card, was that you were able to hand deliver it, Connie! It's beautiful, and I am in awe at those tiny little die cut flowers and how the card was put together so well. Fabulous creation! hugs, de

Those yellow flowers look absolutely perfect to me! Your arrangement was just asking for some yellow flowers to go with the purple. That's a lot of tiny purple die cuts! It's all very cute arranged in the basket with the tag hanging. Very special for your sister!

Such a gorgeous arrangement of flowers, Connie. The yellow flowers look fabulous with the sprays of purple blooms and the green leaves. The vase looks great too. The highlights of inking give the vase a lovely sense of dimension.
