Bloom where you are planted

Hi there!

I hope you are having fun on this lovely Saturday!

I have a card to share, using an octagon die I bought a long time ago, but haven't used once !
Reason being the fact that every time I look at it, I see a STOP sign! Silly hey!

And then some time ago I came across THIS fabulous graphic flower of Angela, using a hexagon die, and that gave me an idea for my never before used die!

Love how you've layered the octagon to make a flower - very graphic and pretty!

Oh that octagon is amazing...the touch of washi tape is the perfect finishing touch too Hannalie.

I love this card Hannalie and the little 'thumbnail' piccy has been shouting at me to take a better look. It's perfect, striking and inspirational.

Slim, vrou, slim en so pragtig!!! Dis so lekker as iets wat jy lank terug gekoop het en nooit gebruik het nie skielik net die ding is wat jy nodig het om iets treffend te maak, ne!! Ek's mal oor jou blom en die washi tape. Die rooi van die sentiment, die drie rooi perels en die rooi kolletjies op die tape bind alles so mooi saam om 'n pragtige geheel te vorm.
Lieflik!!!
Groete
