Flowers, Burlap & Love

I managed to go almost a month without [completely] burying my work table in craft supplies & scraps, but I guess this week I'm making up for it! I'm not so good at putting away things after I've used them ... but instead of tackling that job I decided to make a card and add to the pile!


My paper choices were inspired by the current {PIN}spirational Challenge (see image below). The burlap-printed paper is by Recollections (available at Michaels), and the Memory Box Wildflower Corner die cut is cut from silver adhesive vinyl from Joanne's. The pink patterned papers are scraps.

The layout was inspired by the current Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. The label is cut/embossed with a Pagemakers die form a thick silver cardstock. I heat-embossed the sentiment with a glittery white powder, and attached the piece with small silver brads. I finished the card with adhesive lace.

I'm very pleased with how this card came out, so my procrastination was worth it!
