Crochet & Lace!

I loved all the crocheted items in the May Kit of the Month, A Knitted Garden!  On this birthday card I used the flowers from the Orange Countryside Garden.  I also added the Amber Gradient Gem Stickers from Deal of the Month.  I stamped Happy Birthday on the White Daisy cardstock from CTMH and backed it with embossed Bazzil Peridot Gemstone Cardstock and Creme Brulee cardstock from CTMH.  Used the MS ZigZag embossing border punch to finish the edge.  Lace is from my stash and leave are the MS Pine Branch Punch.  I love the soft look of this punch and use it quite a lot. DP is from DCWV.

Here is a close up of these adorable flowers.  They would also look great with a Pearl Brad in the center.  So many things you can do with these flowers.  Once you try them you will want all the colors available.  Enjoy!

We have a Winner!

Thanks to all who joined in on the Creative Charms blog hop! The winner of my Blog candy is:

JANLYNN said...This is just the sweetest layout. Lovely girly colors that look so soft and cuddlely. I only have boy grandchildren so I don't get to do layouts like this. I would have to say my favorite CC embellees are the flower and butterfly ones that I use on layouts I do of garden tours I take with my mastergardener group.

Email me your address and I will send your prize!  Congratulations!!
