A Friend, Flowers in Your Garden

The inspiration from this card came from ColorMyHeart Color Dare #168, and The Outlawz Thursday Challenge using paper piecing.  I didn't have the La Vie En Rose paper packet in my stash, but my daughter had some so I borrowed from her. I was going to do a lot of mix and match with the design papers in this packet, but when I cut out the floral, I didn't want to cover it up with any other papers, so decided to fussy-cut four of the same flowers and attached them with 3D Foam Tape for dimension.  Didn't add too many embellishments because I just didn't want to cover the floral paper so it remained as a CAS card.

    Beautiful card, Suzanne! That strip of lace really accents the elegance of the image, and that is a sweet sentiment that pairs so well with the image. Thanks for sharing this with us!
