Floral Fantasy

(Mom, don't look!) Here is another card made with Framed Flowers. Had I been able to make a decision this COULD have been a 10 minute card! (I kept going back and forth, back and forth on how I wanted to do all the layers...) Isn't this Floral Fantasy CB folder scrumptious?! (It's one of my new faves) The shapes of the flowers and leaves go really well with Carolyn's images. In addition to loving this "box"image (frame that has SO many uses!), I really love the little individual leaves and flowers included for spicing things up and fleshing out your composition as you like. Here I stamped the individual leaf on the corners of the box as an embellishment instead of the usual brads etc. I used my SU! markers to color directly on the stamp. The word "Mother" is from the free with three set Spring Blooms, I was so thrilled to see all the coordinating font in these two sets(AND with my What's In your Tin? 2 set to boot!) All DP, CS, & ribbon used here (Real Red and Old Olive, two of my favorites) is Stampin' Up!

Okay, gotta go to bed!
