I started off with some scrapbook paper by Scrapworks called 'Florabella'. I usually do not like to work with scrapbook paper as the images/patterns are waaaaay too large to suit me. I used SU!'s soft sky, chocolate chip and very vanilla as my cardstocks. The focal point of this card is the little flowers which are my favorites at the moment - from The Cat's Pajamas. I also used their button die for the centers. I cut my soft sky paper to the sizes I wanted, did my scallops, and ran them through the Cuttlebug with my swiss dots embossing folder. I then used a strip of chocolate chip to help set off the flowers. The twine is actually white kitchen string which I just swiped with a brown Copic marker and I didn't care if it covered entirely or not since it's all the rage right now to have candy striped twine (which I don't have, yet).
That's about all that went on with the card... it's not one of my faves but it really is prettier in real life.
Be back soon,
