Happy Friday everyone! I am so thrilled that it is the end of the week. The last few weeks, I have put in quite a bit of overtime, so I happy to have today off. Yay! I am not sure how much crafting I will get to do since my little man is under the weather. Plus, I've got a bit of housekeeping to do since my sister will be visiting from out of town. She is participating in a golf tournament to benefit my friend, Gina's foundation. Her cancer is progressing and your prayers would mean so much.
Now onto today's card. I created it for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge.
For my card, I used some scraps left over from PTI's April blog hop. Since I wasn't completely satisfied with my card, I did attempt to try and stamp some images in my typical brighter fashion. But since time was running out and my bed was calling my name, I decided to call it quits. I am learning that although I love brighter colors, I need to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. But..... with my scraps on my table, I created this card. Gotta use those scraps, right?
My flower was made using another Betsy Veldman flower tutorial. I die cut tissue paper using Beautiful Blooms II die. I folded the tissue paper onto itself many times before running through my cuttlebug. I did it twice and probably had at least 20-30 layers for my flower. I fluffed it up and added a center button.
