My Honey

Yes I have a honey.  Would it be crazy of me to change my relationship status on Facebook to "In a Relationship with my Silhouette"??  Maybe? Yeah.  Well, I sure love it regardless!  Today I've been scrapping away!  Getting some design and publication stuff finished and squeezing in some "just for me" projects as well!

I found a super cute, fairly new release, image whilst shopping on the Silhouette site today!  When I saw it, I knew I needed to use it immediately.  With some fab Jilli papers, it was time to cut and jack this sweet little flower up!


The image comes in 6 layers and 4 sizes.  Ooooh fun!

First I inked the edges and then crumpled them all up.



I love the greens, browns and reds in this Jillibean line (Lentil Soup) so I needed to use a red center and found some twine for a bow.  Time to layer the flower!



After I got the flower assembled, it was time to "jack it up".  I learned this term from Say Yes To The Dress.  It's what you say when you want to take something already beautiful and make it even hotter by adding the accessories!  My accessories?  Stickles!



Yummy!  Here is the fully assembled card:


A close up of the flower:


I love how the stickers from SRM Stickers blend with the papers so well!


Supplies:  Paper: Jillibean Soup, Cardstock: Paper Accents, Stickers: SRM Stickers, Other: Twine, button, Tools: Sewing Machine, Silhouette Image: 3d_ruffle_flower_C02598_1

Thanks for swinging by!  I made a couple of other cards but I'll try to spread out the blog posts. 

hugs,
Melissa
