You're the BEST!

Hello everyone! 
I pulled out some spring flowers, inspired to play along with the Create Along With Us Challenge at PTI.  Made my card and alas, missed the chance to share it there. So I'm hopping in to share it as part of the Transformation Tuesday challenge. I hope it's OK with the challenge hosts to make a second card with the leftover part of a first card. It does transform the card layout! 
Here's the first card made with the PTI Seasonal Borders Spring stamps and dies, and Penned Elegance.



For the second card, I incorporated the die cut circle from the first card, and added a sentiment from Bold Basics. 


I used a new to me technique called Floating Die Cut Frames that Jennifer shared on her blog last week, find her great tutorial HERE

You can get an idea of how the die cut pieces fit together to make a raised panel on the card with the help of Press N Seal to lay it out. 


Keeping this short today but I must say it feels good to see bright spring colors and flowers here on the page! It's also good to have two encouragement cards ready to go.


Thanks so much for stopping in. Have a great day! I don't tell you often enough how much you encourage me. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas holiday. 

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!











Inks used : PTI - Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides and Simply Chartreuse. WPlus9 - Queen Bee.

It's lovely to see flowers today! I've been missing them, and missing my crafty time, but I'll soon be back at it, I hope. This technique gives a pretty effect. You do the most interesting things with your cards! I love both!
