Friends and Flowers

Getting out of the office a little early today provided me the opportunity to visit the nearby JoAnn's for the first time.  Operation Write Home posted information on JoAnn's Craft for a Cause challenge and I figured that was a good excuse to go shopping.  I was thrilled to find they were having a sale on punches and embellishments! 

Wandering through the isles, I found a Die Cuts with a View piece of patterned paper that I liked so I went from there picking out a matching single solid green sheet, and a package of Studio 112 flowers.  After that I rounded out my stock of basic supplies with two packages of cardstock, two ek success punches that coordinate, white gel pens and adhesives. 

Once home the card came together quickly, not sure why my muse was so active today.  The design paper does nearly all the work, with the green punched piece and flower each popped up to add some dimension.  Simple, but I like how it turned out.


Paper:  Die Cuts with a View single sheet design and solid green papers, The Paper Company white cardstock, Die Cuts with a View Mat Stack purple paper
Embellishments:  Studio112 layered flower.
Other:  ek success punch,  foam tape

I love your card! I'm a clean and simple gal so this is right up my alley. I have that paper and you have inspired me to use it for the troops! TFS! ~Robin

Great card Kathy, and I love the great colors and how you put this all together. I thought of you the other day when my little butterfly die cutter/embosser fell apart *sigh*. I remembered that you like that as much as I do.
