Flowers for a friend

I was asked to make a whole bunch of cards for a friend as she had rather a lot of significant birthdays to buy cards for.
This one is in fact for a mutual friend, a retired doctor, who like me, loves music... but is also a keen gardener.
I die-cut the flowers using a Crafts Too die, from a piece of card coloured with my squished leaves and flowers technique. I had to use several shims to get enough juice out of the flora to transfer to the card this time.
I twinkled the tulips with a little Glamour Dust.
The computer generated sentiment is on a label from a Stampin' Up die, which was paper pierced using a  Stampin' Up pricking template.
The embossing folder is from Sizzix.
It's for the Addicted to CAS challenge


  1. Love your gorgeous, beautiful card

  2. Beautiful! I love the flowers tucked behind the sentiment panel!

  3. Gorgeous card Chrissie, love the way you've used the label like a window box:)

  4. Fabulous how you've combined music with gardening. I love your little glittery flowers, such a pretty card! I think your friend will be thrilled with it. Thank you for joining us at ATCAS.

  5. I love how you incorporated the music notes. It's so unexpected! I like the glimmer too. Thanks for playing at ATCAS. :)

  6. Simply smashing...I love how you tucked the tulips behind the label...looking like a flower box, and the embossed music...I'm tip toeing through the tulips happy.

  7. Well the colours you made from the squished flower technique are so pretty and subtle for the window box.
    Beautiful :0)
