Fresh Cut Flowers...

This time of year I love to walk around my flower beds and cut fresh flowers to bring inside. Now Faith's D2D image this week brings the same happy feeling to my ho-made card...


The scallop black frame around the image was an creative accident!

I wanted to mat the image but the scallop nestie I used just looked toooooo big. So being the cheapo I am, I decided to die cut a simple square out of the middle of the scallop die cut. Well, it caught my attention and when I placed it around the image with the pink background showing through, well, it just didn't look so big and made a perfect frame!
Love it when that happens!

Now for some inspirational challenges...

Digital Tuesday - favorite ice cream combo. I've been on a strictly vanilla ice cream kick with added ingredients. With the fresh strawberries in our garden (well, were in our garden) it has been vanilla with loads of fresh cut-up strawberries!

Craft Your Days Away - Chose a monochrome color theme

Crazy 4 Challenges - add twine, floss or string

Designed 2 Delight Card Ideas - use color combo of orange/pink. sigh ;) I love pink but not so much orange so my combo is very heavy on pink and a few orange flowers.

Designed 2 Delight - the Fresh Cut digi by Faith (I obtained this digi free by participating in the progressive challenge she has every month!)

Lexi's Creations - no sentiment.

Penny's Challenges - Best Friends - represented by the 2 hearts in the bouquet

Truly Scrumptious - the sketch I used. Love this sketch!

Everybody Art Challenge - is an anything goes challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping by!  SAM
