Thoughts Of You








Hello everyone! Here is the card that I did for Always Craftings Whimsical Wednesday challenge and My Creative Times Throwback Thursday. For the Whimsical Wed. challenge you were to use the picture above for your inspiration and for Throwback Thurs. you were to use Walk In My Garden and include a flower. I cut the entire flower from WIMG. The stem was cut from page 103 at 1.5 inches. The flowers were cut from pages 90 at 2, 1.5, and page 89 at 1 inch. I folded the bottom layer down and mounted it to a pop dot. The second and third layers I folded up with the center being folded straight up. I then added a pearl to the center. To finish the card I punches a strip of paper and added ribbon down the center of it and stamped the sentiment. I hope you all are having a great day and thanks for looking.
