Pretty flower card made using the Picturesque cartridge and my trusty cuttlebug.

Hello, friends!

How was your weekend? Mine seemed really short. I had a Biology project I had to work on and that pretty much took all weekend. Hopefully, you guys had a much more relaxing and fun last few days!

Today's card is made using the Picturesque cartridge(my all time favorite until Damask and Elegant Edges). This elusive cartridge is now available at JoAnn's. I also used the cuttlebug to make this beautiful texture. I think it adds a lot to this simple card.
I used Bo Bunny paper.
I cut the flowers out at 1 1/2".
I used my trusty cuttlebug and the Victoria folder for the wonderful texture!

Have a MAGICAL Monday!

A pretty card, simple but very effective. Have the Picturesque cart and it is a really nice one. Bought it after seeing you gals use it a number of times in your cards. Also have a Cuttlebug so I am all set. WIll try making one like this.

I've joined a once a month scrapbooking group- we scrap all day 1 saturday a month. It's a great way to get away from the house and kids and just have fun! The more I use (and see on your blog) the cuttlebug-the more I want one! I loooove my cricut and the cuttlebug is like the perfect sidekick!

patbaskin said...
