CFS What's This Snowflake Doing in the Garden?!


Hi Folks! I went rogue on Michele at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps today ... she asked me to create a card with a snowflake, and I'm pretty sure this is not what she was expecting! But I thought this snowflake from Flurry Fri-Dies made such a cute little flower.


  
To further the flower illusion I used strips of scrap green paper for stems, sequins for the middles, and the leaves from Acorn Fri-Dies.  

   
I think it's quite cheery for a snowflake card : )

In fact, I was having so much fun that I created another snowflake card ...


This one has dandelions, just before they spread their seeds all over your lawn!

  
      
Frosted vellum is a great choice to capture the wispy feeling of seeding dandelions.




The flowers are laid out the same as the first card (why make it hard on yourself coming up with a new layout?) and the sentiment is the same too, from Shenanigans and Wheat Wreath.

  
I was happy with how this one turned out! I bet I could have layered another snowflake and rotated it slightly to get a fuller dandelion. Hmm ...  off to the craft room to check that out!

This card is over at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog today if you'd like additional information. Feel free to use my code "KELLY2017" which will save you 15% off any purchases at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps.

Thanks for looking!
