3D Flowers at My Craft Spot!

Hello, my sweet friends! I hope you had a blessed weekend. :o)

Today begins a fun new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week is all about 3D flowers, which is one of my favorite things in crafting! :o) I love 3D flowers and look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

For my project, I made a card for August's I Feel the Love Project collection. This month we are sending love to the sweet elderly residents at Wynwood of McMinnville assisted living facility. It is so important not to forget our seniors!

Everyone loves flowers that never fade, right? :o)
The beautiful flowers are one of Kimberly's newest goodies, the versatile Flowers- Daisy metal die set! (I adore this collection!) I layered a couple of the designs for regular daisies (minus the largest die) and then filled in my little basket with one of the flower center options. I thought they would make sweet little flowers on their own. :o) (Which was probably Kimberly's line of thinking, too!)
They are covered in Wink of Stella clear glitter, naturally. :o) I tucked tulle into the basket before adding the flowers and finished with a few pearl sprays. The leaves are inked with Forest Moss and embossed with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder. The flowers are inked with Victorian Velvet. The pretty basket is a Marianne Design die.

How adorable are these teeny tiny pink hearts on the bottom panel? :o)
The flower border is from the Fancy Edges 2 metal die set, which I've accented with pearls. The sweet sentiment is from Tiny Tags 3, which I've cut out and layered with the coordinating Tiny Tags metal dies. Petal Pink crinkle ribbon provides a soft border, which I've double-bowed and centered with a Wild Orchid Crafts scalloped pearl.

The lovely papers are part of the box of paper love I recently received as a gift! They are from Pion Design's My Precious Daughter collection. So beautiful. :o) I hope it brings a smile to the heart of the senior who will soon receive it.

Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a sparkly and blessed day. :o)
