Flowers on Branch, Kraft Tag, CAS

I love the simplicity of this card...  and it's really quick and easy to make.




Instructions...

Take one Kraft tag, add a Branch die (Memory Box, Woodland Branch), shape three white flowers from Centura Pearl card (Elizabeth Crafts, Bunch of Flowers 2) and glue centres to the middle of each flower using tiny brown flowers (Memory Box, Flower Mound).  Add some red twine, mount with foam pads onto green backing card that has 'cut outs' in the corners (Joanna Sheen/Signature Die, Rose Leaves), glue to a card front...  Finished.

It's like a quick and easy recipe :)

I'm entering this card into the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (use Kraft, Flowers and Twine)...


It's also being entered into Country View Challenges (use Kraft card) and Tag You're It...

As you can see from the Tag You're It...  design shown above, I've kept to very little of the original design this time.  The central flourish has been replaced by a branch and I've kept three of the flowers.  Other than that this design is quite different.

Hope the bank holiday weekend is treating you well...

I started a blog a few days ago and am befuddled by it! I'm sure I will get there soon. Ha Ha. Keep up the good work, I'm definitely going to keep popping in.
