Follow Your Heart.....


Good morning bloggers!  As we begin our new work week I want to share another card I made.  I just love this sentiment and I actually live by this!  I used one of my new Spellbinders dies, Lattice motifs and I have to tell you I have fallen in love with this one.  It reminds me days gone by and summer days of my childhood!  How do you like the flower?  This is homemade and I simply adore the curls and the delicate look of the flower...this is my take on the gardenia flowers you purchase from many name brand mfgs. I found a video on YouTube called Handmade flowers - paper gardenias by luvleescrapin.  If you would like to make these you can go there and watch the video.  I used white cardstock from Walmart and did a light blue color wash on the petals and then while damp I scrunched and twisted and then glued the layers together to make this little beauty.  Some colored stamen in the center and there you have it.  I'm seeing more of these in my future!

Well I'm off to visit my sister bloggers and see what they have had going on over the weekend.  I'm always happy to see new postings from everyone and see all the beautiful creations.

Have a wonderful day!

Supplies:
Canson watercolor paper
Nature Garden Collection paper from Prima
Blue card stock
Spellbinders Lattice motifs

Beautiful card, Glenda, I am loving that gorgeous Gardenia. My dad loved all flowers but he really liked Gardenia's. Everything about this card is nostalgic for me as well! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
