Pocket full of flowers

Tuesday May 8, 2012

New release tuesday at Catch the bug http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/ This digi is called "Flower Pocket"..

I have been hoarding some washi tapes and thought it's best to start using them so hence the background. I am still having some problems of how to use this tape but having fun playing with it. I have a few cards coming in the future to show.

I really love the colors and this was a fun card to make. Again I used my butterfly made from a calender flower page, those calendars are so big so you get a lot of usage out of the photos so really look at those past calendars you have and cut it for die shapes plus you get a two sided image, so you can choose what side you want to show.. you'd be surprised how beautiful they turn out and nice weight of paper.
