Wispy Flowers

Hi, it is Shirley posting today. I have made a card for the Challenge - #102 An Apple A Day to share with you. I was inspired by the colors and the patterns in the cute apple cookies. The patterns I incorporated in my card was the hearts and plaids.

I used white, pink and green card stock for my card today. The top layer of white was embossed using the Darice Plaid Background embossing folder.

The stems for the flowers were cut using the Memory Box Tall Chloe Stem die. The wispy blooms were cut using the Dee's Distinctively Secret Garden Flower 1 die. I put a light coat of glue on the flowers and sprinkled them with Crystal Ice glitter.

The birdhouse  and hearts were cut using the Impression Obsession Birdhouse die set.The grass was cut using Impression Obsession Small Grass Border.

I cut the fence using Poppy Stamps Country Fence.  I cut two of them, and stacked them on top of each other to make the garden fence taller. I placed a bow over the center of the fence, using the Sue Wilson Finishing Touches - Filigree 3D Itty Bitty Bow.

The clouds were cut using the Memory Box Puffy Clouds die.

I adhered all of the card pieces to the card using the Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

Those cookies sure look mighty tempting, Shirley - a terrific jumping off point for your sweet card today!! Love that you chose the plaid for your inspiration because the EF makes a great BG for the pink and green of the chloe flowers - great idea to make your fence taller - now you can add "builder" to your resume!! Love the tiny hearts and the dainty bow on the bottom - a perfect signature to your card!
