{cardabilities #25}

I had such a good time with this sketch from cardabilities!

Yesterday, I finished a lay-out and used a Prima sprig of flowers. While cleaning up my scrap table, I was about to trash the packaging from the flowers...when I thought "stop right there!" "put that cardboard piece through your cuttlebug w/a die!"

So, that's exactly what I did.

And, is it alright {sometimes} to say "I love it"?
Because I just love how this card came together. :) :)
The base is bazzill, Websters pp on top. You know, I am so bad with my trims. I have them all in a big clear bin just willy nilly in half the time I don't remember who made what. My bad. Seriously need to remedy that situation. ;) The lime green trim on top of die cut piece is Prima, Prima flower & leaf. The pink heart came in a kit, AC metal flower, misc. buttons & machine stitching. I pop dotted the die cut piece and note to self - buy more pop dots -- {I always use up the big ones first.}

Close-up view - especially so you can see that the yellow button is embossed with a butterfly. I so love this button!!

Thank you to the cardabilities DT for their fabulous inspiration & sketch!!
Thanks, also, for coming by my blog.

Have a great day!!
hugs, patti
