The Shabby Tea Room and Stuck on U Sketches

Happy Monday to you! 
My first project is for 'The Shabby Tea Room'
In My Garden is the theme.
How pretty is this inspiration photo!

I just wanted to cover my card in flowers :)

I used a memory box die to cut the flowers from lots of layers of tissue paper, the center is a tiny pom pom. I made the butterfly from paper clay. The frame and sentiment are from Paper Sweeties - who are  sponsoring  this challenge. I love dying the seam binding to match my card.
Here is a close up to show you all the layers.

I look forward to seeing your creation!


My second card is for 'Stuck on U Sketches' die cuts.
We would like to see "Arrows" on your creation.

A few months ago I bought the cricut 'Artfully Sent' has some really fabulous  designs for making cards.  I thought it was about time I dust it off and put it to use!

Hmmmm.....where's the Arrows you might say?

Check out the inside!
How cool is this heart Pop up it! 
I'm not one for all the measuring that's involved with fancy folds, so this cartridge is PERFECT for me. Love the tiny scallop edge on the card base too......a few fussy cut flowers and that's it!

Have a great week everyone
Happy Creating
