Sunday morning.  My project today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge. OUr inspiration site was a Pinterest Gallery full of Beautiful Cookies. I was in absolute awe of the artistry on this site.  You should hop over and take a look for yourself.  You will be amazed.  I was inspired by four beautiful Flower Cookies. I thought it would be fun to create a framed grouping of mixed flowers.  I used two of my new Elizabeth Craft Designs Garden Patch sets by Susan Tierney Blackburn.  The frame for my project was made using the Garden Patch 1 1/2 Inch and Mini Roses set. Several of the flowers were made using the Garden Patch 1 Inch and Mini Daisy and Chrysanthemum set.  I also used the Impression Obsession Tulip Set, Leaves and Stems, Tiny Flowers and the grassy patches from the Mini Bunnies set. The butterflies are from the Memory Box Butterfly Delights.

I cut the rectangle frame out, applied rolled double stick tape to the back and attached it to the card base.  I cut several of each flower, formed them with my stylus and molding pad, assembled the flowers with glossy accents and  applied shading with mini applicators and distress ink. I wanted each of my square frames to be filled with mixed flowers that look like they are growing in a spring garden.

I attached the grass patches in each frame with glossy accents. I randomly arranged flowers and attached them in place with glossy accents. I twisted the tulip leaves with my fingers to make them appear natural and attached them around the flowers with glossy accents.

I couldn’t resist adding a few butterflies for the finishing touch. I know this card full of spring garden flowers will cheer someone’s day when they receive it.
