An (almost) totally non-Cricut card!

Hello everyone!  So, obviously, I've been absent.  Again.  This summer has been incredibly busy and fun, which has not left me much time to blog.  Also, I was hired by a co worker of my mothers to create a scrapbook for her sister, so that pretty much took up all of my crafting time for the past few months.  But it's done, and super cute, so expect a post on that later.  I'm going to try to ease my way back into blogging, maybe just a few posts per week, but I appreciate all of my subscribers sticking with me!

I made this card before I started the scrapbook project using a die-cut flower pad from K & Company.  I don't usually buy this type of thing, since I have my Cricut, but the flowers looked too cute to pass up.

I simply punched out each of the die cut flowers, and all of it's layers, and popped them up on pop dots to add dimension.

I added Glossy Accents to each of the flower centers.  I love the shine :)

The only Cricut cut I used was the vase from Pagoda.  I didn't have my Gypsy with me at the time, so I couldn't hide the flower in the center.  I wish I would have, but I think it still looks cute.

The butterfly is also from the K & Company pad.  I added Stickles to the outside of the wings.

I've really gotten into decorating the inside of my cards.  I would usually just leave them blank, but I've started using coordinating paper to give it a little extra touch.  The sentiment and flower stamps are both from a Pink By Design Stamp of The Month Set.  Seriously, if you haven't checked out PBD, please do.  She has the cutest stamps!

I hope you enjoyed this card, and it's good to be back :)
