Simple bouquet


Today I made a card with a simple bouquet© that I recently drew. I made this card for Cuttlebug Challenge, but I saw that there was a potential way to introduce it in other Challenges. For this reason, I used only blue and green colors . Since the drawing is very simple, I thought it was interesting to add details, like the "frame", to highlight the drawing. In the 1-inch squares I added cute little birds from the Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder, trying to make different shapes on each square. There is a touch of sparkle with the small pearls I added to the flowers, on the frame and on the squares. I really liked the result!

Wow, Edith, I just noticed your card on the OCC site and wanted to come by and tell you how beautiful it is. The color combination is so powerful and beautiful. Your illustration is just super and I really love how you punched the birds out of the embossed paper. So happy you could join in the fun at Our Creative Corner this week!
