Forget Me Not …

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing my first card as design team member of the new Double “D” Challenge blog! The theme for this challenge is “Forget Me Not” accompanied by a lovely inspiration board you can see at the bottom of this post. Cards, altered projects, scrapbook pages, etc will be welcomed as long as the theme (of blue and flowers) is followed!

I used different dies to create my card for this challenge and keep it quite simple. The blue flowers are from “Little Birdie” and new to my stash. I just love the color and sparkling gemstones. I adhere the flowers to green flourishes and layered the two clusters on a white trellis background. The sentiment is a Spellbinders die cut. Hope you will get some inspiration from me to enter your creation for the first challenge at Double “D” Challenges.

Challenges I entered:

    When I was a little girl, my favorite flowers were forget-me-nots. I couldn’t get over how each little petal was so perfect and how vibrant the blue was. I haven’t been reminded of that until I saw your beautiful card on Pinterest today!

    What an awesome card…I love your design and the embossing with those cute flowers. We are so blessed you joined our Challenge weeks ago and would love for you to join our new Challenge still ongoing at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, “But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. ” Have a lovely week.
