Where flowers bloom

I had a while to spare this afternoon, and I joyfully cut into my new, purrrty Authentique Gathering papers, the collection that I'm now seriously hooked on. Love aqua and sand beige, paired with rich browns and soft orange. You will see more of it in a couple of hours, on my CASE Study card.
I also cut out some Dogwood blossoms, from Crate Paper's Nantucket. Another fav line and colours... it feels SO good to be in my craft studio again!! :)


Supplies: cardstock: SU! (Soft Suede); papers: Authentique (Gathering), Craft Paper (Nantucket); stamps: Jane's Doodles; ink: Memento (Rich Cocoa); MFT Die-Namics Bracket Die; sewing machine; edge distresser; buttons; metal flower: SEI; metal brad; flower die: EZCut

I utilized the VLVJan2012 Week 1 sketch (hooray for the return of Verve sketches!), and the colours of CTD174. My buttons are more So Saffron though, I didn't have any in bright enough yellow handy.

Back in a little while, with the CASE Study post, hope you'll join me again :) Thanks for visiting!
