Sweet Flowers at Secret Garden Crafts

I don't know about you, but I can never get enough sweet flowers.  They're just SO elegant, and they add such a lovely touch to cards and projects.  Secret Garden Crafts has so many lovely flowers from Prima, Petaloo, Wild Orchid Crafts, and more.  AND....there's a FABULOUS sale taking place where you can get FREE SHIPPING on all orders $20 and higher.  Now that's one worth exploring!
This card was created with some lovely patterned papers that I inked and layered.  I stamped my sentiment, ran some gray lace and seam binding across the card, and then attached some lovely flowers from Secret Garden Crafts.  The big flower at the top right is a beautiful Prima flower, and on the top left, I attached some  Peach Wild Roses and some Coral Open Roses. There's also a lovely Green and White Paper Mulberry Leave tucked in there.
I also wanted to create a Christmas Gift Tag to share with you all today just to demonstrate the fact that FLOWERS can be used on anything and everything....including Christmas projects.  This sweet and simple little tag was creating using some Crate Paper patterned papers, stickers, lace, seam binding, and FLOWERS!

Once I had everything else in place, I added some Sweetheart Blossoms, Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms, a Two-Toned Green and White Mulberry Leaf, and some GORGEOUS Light Yellow Double-Head Flower Stamens.  These sweet little Flower Stamens are beautiful.  They come in many different colors, cost just ONE DOLLAR per bundle of 100 pieces, and they can be tucked in anywhere.  Can you see them peeking out from the top of my flowers?
As far as I'm concerned, you can never add "too much".  There's just no such thing.  And this is a great time to stock up while this special offer is taking place.  There's also a fun new monthly CHALLENGE on our Facebook Page (it's called Play Creative).  We hope you will play along for your chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the shop.  Be sure to stop by and check out the Secret Garden Crafts Blog and all the lovely flowers available at Secret Garden Crafts.  You will LOVE what you see!

Have a blessed week,
Karen

I'm playing along here:

25 Days of Christmas Tags - This tag was inspired by Amanda Bodine's card from Day 2.  I was really drawn to her fabulous color combination, and it's really inspired me in making my tags this week.
