If friends were flowers

Hi! A few challenges have inspired my card today and I enjoyed making this one - firstly I pulled out my embossing paste and made a fun background - then I made my flowers using the colours from the picture inspiration at time out.

Thanks for your visit and I hope your weekend is crafty xx

Hi Karen, I love hoe you make the background using the paste and then use dies full of colour to give a stunning card. This design still produces a CAS card but has a touch of stunning texture. Thanks for supporting us at TIME OUT x

Karen, I love everything about this card...the three floral bloom colors are perfect together, and the white embossing paste adds interest but keeps the background clean and open. Thanks for joining us at CASology!
