The QFTD is Cathleen/ctorina. Her gallery is loaded with the most beautiful cards you would ever hope to see. Talk about talent..she has it! She uses lots of punches and many of her cards have white backgrounds but I decided to case this card, http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...amp;si=ctorina where she has used designer paper. Mine may be a little busier than a lot of hers but I really loved this beauty she created.
I kept the layout and placed flowers along the bottom as she did
Different image, punches, paper, and added a bird to the top.
I stamped my large flower, watercolored, cut out and popped. Punched the two smaller ones and watercolored.
Enjoy your day, Cathleen. Hope you have lots of fun seeing what everyone does with your cards.
Punch tally: 4,000 Ooh, I meant 4 LOL but one was used 2 ways and one was using 2 different sizes, so 4 and 1 die cut = 25 lbs. lost

I love this card... so pretty.. love the micro beads and the buttons for flower centers... also the way you interlocked the border punchings... wonderful idea... love it all..
Christmas cards... yeah I have about 120 finished at this point.. .now I just have to make the money to send them all.. LOL.. the cards are the easy part.. .the postage is another thing unto its self... I started in November for this years cards.. .that way I dont' have all the last minute stuff and do enjoy making them... I try to make about 10 of each kind.. but do find specials I have to do... still fun.. have a fun day.. I think this will be a pretty challenge..
