year of flower challenge

Hello crafty friends!  I am back with a quick post for Papertrey Anniversary's Year of Flower (YOF) Challenge.  As part of  the anniversary surprise, Papertrey is releasing coordinating dies for all the YOF sets.  How awesome is that!  No more fussy cutting in the future!

Related to that, today's challenge is to create a project using your favourite flower of the series.  I only have 2 of them and my favourite is hands down the violets. 

So on this very snowy day here in Toronto, I decided to make my card a little cheerful.  Here it is...

I used  Papertrey's YOF: Violets, Pretty Peonies for the sentiment, ink (smokey shadow) and cardstock (lemon tart, simply chartreuse and stamper's white).  I also used my Li'l Inker's Stitched Rectangles dies and did some embossing with it. This will be the last time I am fussy cutting those flowers!

Stay warm!


  1. Irma , I absolutely love this! Its beautiful! so CAS and very elegant the way you framed it. Now I might need that die seeing the way you embossed it!

  2. Such a beautiful look. Love it stamped on colored paper, and that stitched mat is the perfect finishing touch.

  3. So pretty and clean and simple. Love all the details you added to your card.

  4. What an elegant card, Irma. I love the detail you created by embossing the stitched rectangle.

  5. So pretty and I love the frame you created.
