My First Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Brown Paper Packages Tied Up in String...

This is the challenge over at the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog and sounded like a fun challenge to me!!!! If you want to see the details and the beautiful creations over there just click here!

I love working with the Kraft paper and I thought for this card I would just stamp the background with one of the sunflowers from the Friendship Bouquet stamp set. I also stamped the medium sized sunflower and cut it out. I tied it up with the Bakers Twine and used the 3-D Foam Tape to make the flower stand out!

It seemed a bit plain...or as my husband I added some seed beads to the centers of the flowers and this is what I ended up with...

It's still not how I had first envisioned the card, but I think that is the best part of never know what the end result will be!

As always...just leave a comment or email me if you have any questions! If you are interested in any of the products I used just click on the item listed below and it will take you directly to my website!

  1. Love the addition of the beads, but liked it before as well. I love the tone on tone flowers and the little square of yellow to set of the one you cut out. Great job.
