Voting Starts Now!


The first round for the Top 20 was to
use DIY embellishments on your card!

I love working in a style that I have deemed "shabby fresh," marked by color, clean design and layering of different embellishments.

The DIY Embellishments are flowers die cut
from patterned paper. They are then stitched together, dry-brushed with paint and are button-centered. Bending up the edges creates some dimension.

The inspiration came from fresh flowers sold at farmers markets and the like. They wrap your bunch of flowers in newsprint, so I  incorporated the newsprint into the card.

Make sure to register, and place your vote--I hope that you like mine enough to vote for it. My other fellow Top 20 have created some BEAUTIFUL work!
