This for Loll Thompson! I ADORE her work and her gallery is FILLED with wonderfull creations I actually chose inspiration from TWO cards. One for the layout and back ground: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=287186
and one for the idea of taking the flower die and cutting it more than once: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=287186
I just tried to capture her style and CASness. She always makes it look so easy but she does so many things to her cards that takes them to the next level!
This card is also a birthday card for my friend of 34 years, Cindy.
These poor little Fuchsia's have had a rough morning! They have been ripped and put back together, taken off a completed card and started over on a new one and had leaves re-attached! I want to say here and now that I have MUCH respect for CAS card makers. I don't think there is ANYTHING simple about them.
I used the EKSuccess edge punch to create the panel(popped up)that the Fuchsia Sprig is placed on. I cut the sprig in pink and yellow and green twice and played with trying to get a realistic looking fuchsia! Would that be considered paper piecing? Loll does lots of that soooo well! Maybe that only counts on stamps....
Thank you for looking.

Wow!! So gorgeous Peggy!! :) I love the flowers done in the two colors - so perfect! I have a fuchia die, but it's not near as nice as yours (mine has yet to be used and I'm embarrassed to say I've had it for about two years!). I LOVE the popped-up circle cut strip ... such a soft and beautiful shade of green. Perfectly matched with your circle embossed background. Fabulous card ... thank you so much for honoring me, dear friend! Loll xx
