Fred She Said - Fall Flower Collection Aster

Greetings Bloggers! Today is the day to play with some Fred She Said Fall Flowers. This is the Aster from the Fall Flower Collection at the Fred She Said Store here. I just love this digital flower set. There is a Sunflower, Black Eyed Susan, Chrysanthemum, and this Aster. What a lovely set of cards you could make with those for a wonderful gift!Here you can see that I printed out the image 3 times. I cut one with the oval spellbinders then layered one whole cut floral on top. I then cut out the biggest flower and popped that as well for dimension. My favorite embellishment was used on the flowers....."stickles"!!! lolI used the cuttlebug thin stripped embossing folder for the sides and placed some pearls in the center of the flowers.

This is a picture of the card and envelope together that I made. This was such a fun card to make. I loved the blue and white together. This is about as close to Clean and Simple that I have come to a card in a long time. Hope you have enjoyed viewing this creation!Challenges Entered
