Life is Good – Wallflower card for CVC

My last card in the Wallflower collection that I have been making. Using one sheet of 12 x 12 paper from the Tim Holtz Wallflower paper stash to make 4 cards – bargain. If you have missed the others you can find them here, here and here on my blog or fuller versions here, here, and here on the Country View Crafts Updates blog.

Other products I have used -
Vintage flowers from the Thrift Shop Ephemera pack
Stamps – simple sayings, shabby french
Butterfly Frenzy strip die
Movers and Shapers butterfly die
Raffia made into a bow (my supplies)
Distress Inks – victorian velvet, aged mahogany, scattered straw, walnut stain
Distress crackle paint – rock candy

I would love it if you popped over to see the full details and more photos on the Country View Crafts Updates blog.

Thanks as always for stopping by and taking a look at what I have been creating.

I hope you are having a good week and getting some creative time.

Love the pink and yellow on your pretty card, Brenda. I'm off to CVC for a closer look...

This a beautiful card Bren and I just love how you've put it together. Sometimes I look at a pretty paper and just don't want to cover it so it gets put back and not used. This is a fab example of how we CAN use them without detracting from their beauty. Fab, fab, fab! Chris xxx
