Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Floral!

Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th – Floral!

Happy mid-week! The weather has finally gotten a little more Spring like here on Long Island and I’m loving it! I have been making sure that I spend a lot of time outside! Even it’s just sitting in the backyard doing a little reading. Speaking of reading I have read 6 books in the past three weeks! I got a Kindle Paperwhite and am loving it! The series that I just finished is called Breakthrough by Michael Grumley. It was fantastic and I highly recommend it! I also bought a Pallet Buster to easily take apart pallets for some projects. Another highly recommended item! 😀

It’s release day over at Concord & 9th so that means that it’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

I have been on a wreath kick lately, they make such a nice focal point for a card and they aren’t just for the Holiday’s anymore! I began by stamping the wreath from the Concord & 9th Magnolia Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set in Freshly Cut Grass and Jalapeño using my Mini MISTI. I then stamped the greeting from the same set in Black Licorice. For the flowers I used the Coordinating Die Set to cut them from some 65lb Rose Quartz Stardream Metallic. To adhere them to the card I used Mini Glue Dots and added a Basic Jewel Rhinestone to the center of each of them for a little sparkle! Another simple card! I do love the metallic look of the flowers, adds a little something extra don’t you think?!

I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Spring Challenge! We hope that you will take some time to share your creation with us!
