DL.ART Thankful Thursday #200 - Flowers

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme is (my personal favorite!!) Flowers. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your DL.ART purchase. And have you seen the new Intimate Bundle?? Gorgeous!!


For my cards, I used papers from Craft and You. I applied texture paste through a The Crafter's Workshop stencil for texture.


The butterflies are a Tim Holtz Sizzix Butterflies On the Edge die. The beautiful crinkle ribbon is Pink Champagne from Vintage Vinyeard Bundle.


This ribbon is Rose, also from Vinage Vineyard Bundle. I used a wide variety of Wild Orchid Crafts for these cards. Tucked underneath are Elizabeth Craft Curvy Leaves, Memory Box Chloe Stems, Paper Smooches Foilage 2 and a Prima Persian Lace die. The Guipure Lace and White Sissal is from Wild Orchid Crafts.





I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) Simon Stays Stamp Wednesday Challenge - For a Special Lady/Girl
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - 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 flower project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)


This next photo isn't a great one, but I was so excited to spot the first butterfly of the year!! I wanted to get a better snap, but it flew away before I could. March 8th seems a little early to me, but we've had a pretty mild winter. I'm worried for it's safety since the temps are supposed to drop to the 20's this weekend with a forecast of snow :(


Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!!

Your cards are beautiful! I love the layers of diecuts and paste along with the gorgeous flowers! And how exciting to see the first spring butterfly :) Its amazing how much of a boost that first sign of spring gives us emotionally! Have a fantastic day, Hugs!

Beebeebabs said...

Wow you create the most beautiful cards always - love the layout and beautiful flowers and die cuts - another great creation my friend thanks for sharing!!!

Redanne said...

Is there anything more beautiful than butterflies and flowers...your cards are gorgeous, the colours are beautiful and I love those touches of lace.

It looks a bit like the Comma butterfly that we see here in the UK but it doesn't normally come out until May or June... I do hope yours survives!! Hugs, Anne xx

Redanne said...

Hmm, it might be a Tortoiseshell, they come out a bit earlier.... you have got me thinking now - lol!! xxx

Robin said...

Such beautiful cards Lisa! I love the floral sprays and those butterflies! It is very early for the butterfly...I hope it makes it too. I worry that the bugs didn't die off well enough because of the mild winter...summer may bite us too much. Have a fabulous day my friend! Hugs, Robin

Donna Ellis said...

Yeah! Your first butterfly! We only don't see butterflies if the weather is raining or if it has been below freezing for a few days. There is always such hope in seeing butterflies, aren't there? Your cards are lovely, Lisa. Exquisitely feminine and just soooooo beautiful! xo

Lori Kobular said...

Wow! A butterfly already! I am so jealous, although we have had some really warm weather no butterflies have fluttered into our yard yet! Your two cards are stunning! I love the light pink and the dark pink flowers on your Birthday cards! The details and the dies and embellies you have put into each of these cards are wonderful!

Doris said...

So Beautiful Lisa !!
Lovely colors and details !
Greetings Doris

Brenda in IN said...

I feel bad that the flowers and now butterflies think spring is here for sure. It will be cold this weekend and maybe snow. Will we even have crops this year! I love all of the flowers on your cards. At least they are happy no matter what the temp is. Beautiful cards.

Diane said...

Gorgeous cards Lisa, one so soft and pretty and one so bright and pretty...equally beautiful! A butterfly?...wow...haven't seen those yet...just stink bugs...lol! My daffies have buds, but I am scared I will lose them all...sigh! Have a great day!

Darnell said...

Absolutely mind-blowing cards, Lisa! You turn your cards into paper gardens!! I hope the early butterfly makes it. I do so worry this year about all the flora and fauna with these wildly fluctuating temperatures. Hugs, Darnell

Lena's Creations said...

Gorgeous cards. Love those beautiful floral arrangements on your cards. The papers are exquisite. Have a wonderful day. Hugs~Lena

katieo said...

I love how you made two different pink versions. The flowers and the ribbon are gorgeous together. I hope the butterfly survives and that the snow isn't too bad.

Ranjana's craft blog said...

Lovely card....The flowers don't look like paper flowers. They look real ones

Judy Corner said...

WOW! I love how your cards always come in pairs! And I can also relate how this might happen. Somehow I rarely make one card at a time! Probably because when I cannot make up my mind on something if I am choosing between two papers for instance, I end up making two! These are gorgeous Lisa, and what beautiful flowers! Happy weekend. Judy x

FABULOUS Lisa!! The floral sprays are beautiful and I love the way you tucked in the ribbon and bits and bobs around them! The dps are beautiful and the little flowers sprinkled around! As always your creations are amazing :)

Brenda said...

Jaw dropping gorgeous are these cards Lisa! I love everything about them, EVERYTHING! I can't believe you saw a butterfly already this year!!!! It's so cold now, I hope the poor thing survives! How do butterflies stay warm?! Inquiring minds like mind want to know. I've not seen any butterflies, just Robins. lol Hugs, Brenda

Sara Barker said...

How can it be that each of your cards is more stunning than the next! I love that paper, and the TCW stencil is one of my favorites! It looks just beautiful on those papers--your stenciling is immaculate! The On the Edge die is such a clever addition--why didn't I think of that with my last card??! The flowers as always are arranged to perfection! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this set of cards! Hugs!

Sara Barker said...

PS I feel so bad for your butterfly. I'm sure you have had lot's of snow--we even had some yesterday morning!

Ally said...

Stunning cards you show us today, love! Every one is unique in design and layout and I admit "flowers" is my fave theme too.
I hope the butterfly survives! <3
xoxo, Ally

Pamellia Johnson said...

Good morning my friend. I'm just playing some catch up today on your blog, seems I've fallen behind once again, doh! These are simply breathtaking!! I love the papers, you really do have the most amazing collection of papers and you use them all so perfectly! The butterfly border at the top is wonderful and the subtle texture pattern you added is a lovely touch! Your flower arrangement are, of course, perfection!! I mean, wowzers, I just added about a dozen things to my WOC wish list! Laces and leaves and butterflies, oh my! Love both tones of pink, can't even pick a favourite because they are both just delightful!!

I'm so jealous of your butterfly photo Lisa. You know, I didn't see a single butterfly all year last year, what the deuce! I hope this year will bring one or two my way, but keep those pics coming just in case! hugs :)

Karon said...

Beautiful cards and love those backing papers too. TFS

Pawsitively Creative said...

Of course this is the absolute perfect theme for you! Haha. Wonderful use of the flowers and so many flowers to look at. Beautiful and charming, all with a fantabulous vintage shabby vibe. Wowzers and gorgeously gorgeous! Hugz to you muffin!
