For my card I used the new Noted Pinked A2 Vertical die. Flowers from Forest Floor: Summer and Botanical Bounty and the checks from On the Farm all by PTI. I love checks anyway so this was right up my alley.
Lizzie's Make it Monday showed us how to stencil the border to draw you eye in to the center focal point. I started by stenciling the border with the snowflake stencil from Post and Parcel. Then used the Chicken Scratch Gingham with the Mix and Mat snowflake center die. Obviously neither of these represent winter or look like snowflakes but they seem to work. The Sentiment is from the Big Basics. The butterfly is the new small butterfly in Butterfly Blooms. I used miscellaneous flowers.
The challenge was to imitate one of the designers cards with your own stash of flowers. Of course I chose Betsy and I always love her colors and designs. However, I realized she must have drawn the "Ball" on the jar as we don't have that stamp. I did the best I could and it turned out ok. I used the flowers from Stemmed Statements, the Friendship pint jar and a Gathered Garden stem. The sentiment is from Ways to Say Thinking of You. I'm so excited about the Anniversary release - it looks darling!!!
