Let Your Dreams Blossom

Our Polkadoodles Design Team Challenge for this week is Spring Flowers and boy do we have some beautiful flower cards ready to show you!  You can click HERE to go to the Polkadoodles Craft Challenge blog or if you'd prefer ~ read on to see what I made first.

For my project card I selected Polkadoodles Blooms 1 Flower Bundle and made this 5-1/2" square greeting card.

I enlarged the flower image to about 3 inches tall and used my Copic markers for coloring.  I used the Gina Marie Designs Drop Pendant die for the stitched edging for the image and the sentiment.  Then for something a little different, I added a good bit of my book binding glue to the center of each flower, then added yellow seed beads.  They of course seem to have a mind of their own and don't exactly stay in the lines, but I really liked the effect they gave to this card.   

Once they had dried completely, then I could proceed with the rest of the card. 

Sometimes it seems the best dies are the ones that get discontinued!  Polkadoodles Elegant Flourish Die was one of those.  I die cut two of these out of the light green cardstock from the paper packs and positioned them coming in from opposite sides of the card, overlaying the tags.  They add just the right touch of elegance to the card to complete the design.
