For Mum!!!

I'm sure I am not alone in making impulse buys that get home and then get stashed I?
The Prima flowers I have used on this card are one of the many impulse buys I have made over the years and they were sitting in a bag, sad and neglected until yesterday when I had a flash of inspiration.
There were two sizes in the set and this is the largest made into a flower head on a four inch Sizzix circle.
I wanted to keep the card clean and simple so I have layered white textured cardstock onto some deep bluey purple Core'dinations and added silver lines and corners......that's another few got rid of.

I've had a busy day today......when do I ever!!! Tax return is sorted ready to do online tomorrow, cooking, cleaning etc and now I am ready for a bit of a chill with DD as we have Ruby tomorrow.
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. What a fabulous idea Sheila. I have loads of flowers I fell in love with, bought and then have left languishing in boxes and jars because I now so enjoy making my own. This is a brilliant way to use them up. I think I know what sort of card my Mum's getting in March, lol! Thanks for the inspiration.
