Another Pail of Flowers!

I just really like this new image Pail Of Flowers by Faith @ Designed2Delight! I think this is my 3rd card using it. :) Right now it is free to everyone! Check it out HERE.
For the background on my card, I punched a bunch of Scalloped Squares & glued them onto my 5-1/2 x 4" card. Then I ran it through my Big Shot with an embossing folder. I colored the image with Copics & paper-pieced the flowers & quilt. My friend Debbie often adds her home-made crocheted flowers to her cards. I got the crazy idea one day, that I would learn how to make some too! I bought a book & gave it a try. Well, it hasn't quite worked out for me...I had to buy this crocheted flower, but I did find a great use for the book! I tore a piece from a page, inked it & attached it to my card! Can you see it? lol

  1. You crack me up! LOL!! I think your flower is lovely. Glad you got great use of the book though. Ü

    Happy Mother's Day my friend!

  2. Very pretty card, Bridget! I love all the texture and a great way to use the book that didn't quite work out for you :)

  3. This is fabulous Bridget! Love the crocheted flower:)

  4. I love the card, Bridget! Great use of the book page. I am trying crochet flowers myself so we will see how that goes. Your cards are always lovely!!

  5. LOL!!!! That is too funny, when I was looking at your card last night, I was trying to get a closer look a the page you tore, wondering what it was from. lol! I'm still laughing. :) This card is so pretty! I love the "shabby chicness" about it. Beautiful colors, too!

  6. Bridget - I can't crochet either so I feel your pain! I LOVE how you recycled the book tho!

    I asked my sister to make me a few flowers (she can crochet) but I got 1 out of her :)

    Very pretty card.

  7. Very PRETTY! I love that you popped up some of the flower and your crocheted flower is awesome =) I can crochet too, but need to get working on some more of these. I promise my sister I'd make her some too ;) LOL

  8. You made me LOL! :) used the book for ripping pages! :D tee hee.

    Great card, lots of gorgeous texture and details, and dont worry about the crochet. I was taught to do that as a child, my mum used to make lacy doileys and stuff, but its not something I feel I need to be doing ;)
