Spiral Flower debut


I love this gorgeous Hardwood background stamp and wish I’d ordered it! Fortunately, my friend Kelly has it so I had a go with it and made this very simple card. 

The most complicated element on it is the paper flower, which I made using the fabulous new Spiral Flower Originals die. My flower isn’t perfect but a) it was my first go and b) does it really matter? For the record, I deliberately “smashed” it, to make it look a bit more shabby chic! Then I covered up the uneven centre with an oversized pearl. As the saying goes, “there are no mistakes, only opportunities for further embellishment”. 

I’m still loving my Fringe Scissors - that little pop of coloured fringing really finishes off the card, I think.
