A 'Clean and Simple' Flower Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made to enter into
The Flower Challenge for this month, with
the theme of 'Tic-Tac-Toe' board.

                         Here is the board, I have chosen.                          
Sentiment/CAS/Colour (Blue)

I am embarrassed to say that this the first time I have used the embossing folder
since buying it in April at the Alexandra Palace craft show.
It embosses beautifully. I paper-pieced the flowers and leaves.

The products I have used are:-
Creative Expressions Embossing Folder - Jasmine Frame
Memory Box - Cecilia Outline
Sentiment - free with craft magazine
Challenges entered:-
The Flower Challenge - 'Tic-Tac-Toe' (Sentiment/CAS/Colour-Blue)
Watercooler Wednesday - Feminine Anything Goes
As You Like It - Flora or Fauna (I love anything flowery)
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Embossing
Craft Rocket Challenge - Something beginning with 'F'
Everybody Art Challenge - Clean and Simple

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I wouldn't be embarrased at all, lovely to see it used though and such a lovely cas card

  2. hahahahha... are we supposed to be embarrassed for not using our supplies immediately? It never bothers me... I believe I have to 'let them cure' before I use them!
    Your card is gorgeous and I like how the embossing frames the pretty flower. It's a great CAS.

  3. Such a pretty card Janice, beautiful flowers and pretty embossing folder - I'm sure we will see it again.
