Garden Thank You!
It's almost March. Can you believe it?  Here in Florida we've had one of the mildest winters I can remember in 12 years.  My Azaleas and my shrubs are all beginning to bloom.  I LOVE flowers.  Today's card represents just that - flowers.  Using the Big Shot and some punches you can create this card in minutes.  Tips:
  1. The white and chocolate cardstock are seperate pieces. One was embossed and the other stamped.
  2. The Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch is a wonderful product. Here I cut the strip in half to create the eyelet border on the front of the card. I was able to create two cards from that one punched strip.
  3. I added small dots to the center of each flower using the White Gel Pen. Remember to use the pen straight up and down and work slowly to get great results.
