Wildflowers card for Country View Crafts

I have a card today using the gorgeous wildflower stems from Tim Holtz, I just adore the shapes of theses blooms and the added greenery. I am also sharing it over on the Country View Crafts Project Blog.

Process steps
Spritz the back of the doily stencil and sprinkle over sunset beach infusions. Lay over the card panel and rub over with a dry piece of kitchen paper. Remove, heat dry and edge with age mahogany distress ink.

 Gather together some ephemera pieces to make a little collage .......

 ..... and adhere the flowers and sentiment over the top.

If I were to make another of these now it would take less than half an hour but the thinking time and die-cutting time (I cut 6 different colours of flower!!!) took me several hours to get it right. BUT .... I actually really like it now I've got it done.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today and ......

Stunning card Brenda! I used to wonder why people put so much effort into the base layers when they were just going to put stuff on top, but your projects show so much "quality" because of that process :D XXX

Brenda this is my kind of card, one that after the hard work and thought it then gives that repeat technique to produce one after the other and just by changing those colours each will all have it's own unique quality. Fabulous design.
I love that rich red against those warm toasty tones, the black really centralises the eye. What a great piece and I agree entirely what's not to love about those wildflower stems *Sigh*
Thanks for sharing HUgs TRacey xx
