Flowers and Burlap

Some time ago I bought some flower and leaves dies from Creative Expressions and they have been sitting on my desk waiting to be played with. I also just bought a background burlap stamp made by Justrite . There are lots of challenges around blogland at the moment asking for flowers and I had an idea in my mind to use the burlap stamp with a flower strategically placed on top.  This is sort of what I set out to do but cut the background down, even though I really wanted the frayed edges showing but it was too big for what I wanted to do.

 

 The sentiment doesn't show up enough so will be covered with a banner I think before I use the card. Originally this was going to be for Casology where the cue word is flowers and for Less is More where the theme last week was flowers (but I was too late), so how lucky is it that this week they want us to use dies and my flowers are dies - serendipity I think! And as the diecuts have used up some snippets I'm heading off to the Playground as well. I haven't been for a couple of weeks so it will be good to see what's going on there! It might have photographed better if it didn't match my wall!

  1. Sue, I love the burlap stamp. I really thought it was the actual white burlap. You make the perfect choice using those flowers on top of that stamped image. Beautiful. I'm impressed.
