DL.ART Thankful Thursday #180 - Flowers and/or Graduation

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART. The theme this week is Flowers and/or Graduation...or you could always enter a Thank You card instead. If you use the code l01201, you'll receive 10% off your order at DL.ART!!


The papers for my cards are from Heidi Swapp's Dreamy stack. I covered the base layer with texture paste through a Prima Flourish Stencil.


A Paper Artist Lacy Frame was added next. Tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts blooms are Memory Box Chloe dies and Sue Wilson Mosaic Leaves dies.


This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Primrose from the 2016 Spring Bundle. The sentiment is from C&D Visionary...one of my favorite quotes!! I thought it would be perfect for a graduate. The banner is a My Craft Spot die (no longer in business).


This stunning ribbon is Blue Hue Tail from Mermaid's Tale Second Edition. The sentiment is from Skipping Stones Design Heartsongs stamp set. I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Flowers
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Pause, Dream Enjoy Linky - Anything Goes
4) 2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes
5) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your flowers and/or graduation project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  33. Amazing colors, lovely layers and lots of lush embellishments to make a pair of beautiful cards. Really do like those border leaves too. On the metal plate (Sizzix one)..you can't use the 'open dies'. They will warp. It's for intricate, not a lot of open space - type dies. After I warped my circle & oval S/B, I heard this info on a video. Who knew? Probably everyone but me! Happy wkend. Hugs.

  34. Beautiful! The colors, texture and creativity is stunning. Yellow is a favorite color of mine, put with blue and WOW! The flowers and beautiful ribbon is kind of like icing on the cake...amazing.

It's amazing. :o) Your work is forever beautiful, my dearest Lisa. Thank you for the endless inspiration. Have a sparkly night. :o)
