MIM #66

Hey there! Hope you are having a nice weekend! I finally got around to playing around with a Make It Monday again. I made a card for one a couple weeks ago, then didn't get around posting it. I actually have a few cards I need to catch up on posting, so I'm hoping to catch up this week a bit.
Anyway, this week Ashley challenged us to use our border dies to create flowers for our cards, and this is what I came up with:

I used the rickrack border die to create my little buds. I also used some felt I just got in from Ellen Hutson in Buttercream and Mac ~n~ Cheese. I think Mac~n~Cheese is a funny name, but it is the perfect way to describe the color! I actually used the rick-racks that I cut out on the card, and used the negative cuts to make the flowers. I recently bought the Sweet Baby set off the forum, and got the dies with my April order, so wanted to use them. I don't need or make baby cards very often, but I'd always loved this Sweet Baby set and just got the Gingham background set by Impression Obsession, also from Ellen Hutson, and thought this MIM would be a good excuse to use them together!
Anyway, I'm going to get back into my craft room while I have some weekend left! :) Time just flies so quickly on the weekends, and there is always so much to do!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I'll be back real soon!

Such a funky card Jess! Those rolled flowers are superb and I love the colour combo and how you tied it into all the elements!

I love your card - the colors, the tag and the cute flowers!!!

How smart you were to make the flowers from the negative cuts, Jessica! This is an adorable baby card, love the cute little giraffe and that is a
perfectly stamped gingham background too.

Nice to hear from you after a long absence. This card is so sweet, and perfect for a baby girl or boy. I like how you used the felt on the tag, and for a flower, too.
