Celebrate Your Day - All Things Grow With Love

Hi!

I am still taking a little break from Holiday cardmaking at the moment. I am sure I will be back with more Holiday shares before the season is over. 

Today the weather is warm for this time of year and instead of feeling like fall, it feels more like spring although it is very apparent visually it is not Spring. It reminds me of what is to come. New beginnings. As we round the end of 2012 and start thinking forward to 2013, there are many new beginnings.  So in a round about way, my card is to new beginnings and fresh starts. Growing things with love! 
I started by piecing together my patterned papers and adding to my coral card base. I cut a paper doily in half adding some vintage buttons which have been embellished with twine. The die-cut was added to the center where three more vintage buttons with twine were added to the top. 
A crochet flower was placed at the lower left of the card front adding a beautiful paper yellow rose to the center.
A length of Crochet Trim was added to the top and a fussy seam binding bow was created adding a beautiful fabric button to the center. Last, but not least, a sentiment from Paper Sweeties; You Make Me Smile was added to the right side of the card front. 

Inspiration for my card comes from: The Ribbon Reel: Crochet
We were to create a card / project using CROCHET LACE or CROCHET FLOWER plus BUTTON & RIBBON/TWINE

That's all for me friends!  It will be quiet on the blog for the next few days! I look forward to posting again when I return and we get back in our routine. 

Many blessings and hugs!
~Tammy~
