*Flowers and the 'Bug*

I love my Prima Flowers, but I hardly ever seem to grab them to use them. I think part of it is that I bought the flowers I have but didn't think much about colour selection. I have a lot of burgundy flowers, a few pinks... but not a lot of colours I seem to gravitate to regularly.

That's why I joined Janet's Canadian Prima Share... I'll get a good variety of colours of daisies this way.

Today's card uses some of my Prima Flowers.

I started with an Almost Amethyst card which I put through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls embossing template (have you figured out that I love this template???). I then added some beautiful Primas in the corner. I didn't attach them to the card with the gold brads... instead I put the gold brads through the flowers to cover the holes in the flowers and then glued them on to the card. I prefer to not have brads sticking through the finished card if at all possible. I tied a pink ribbon across the top and added a gold swirl clip.

Easy peasy.

I don't know what it is but I think I've used more Almost Amethyst cardstock in the last month than I have in the two years I've been using SU cardstock!

Have a great weekend!

I really like this card! I am in love with the swirls folder too & use it probably more than I should haha!
This card looks so classy. I'm going to try it for a wedding card I need.
