Gingerloft Guest Designer-Use Those Flowers

Hey everyone! I am so excited today as I am a guest designer for the "Use Those Flowers" at the Gingerloft Challenge. This is the second time I got to be a Guest Designer and play with Tami's fabulous digis. I chose this Gingerloft digi called Playground. Isn't he just darling. I colored him with my Copic markers. Here is a nice close up of how cute this little guy is. Not only did I have fun coloring and creating my focal point, but I finally had a chance to play with my Birthday present. I made these flowers with my Cuttlebug Quilling Kit. These are so much fun to make and so easy. You just run your dies through the bug and then roll the pieces on a special quilling tool that is included in the kit.Here is another close up of the flowers and the butterfly I used to embellish this card. The following is a list of supplies I used for this drawer easel card.

Spellbinders-Beaded Circle Nestabilities, Fancy Tags
Sizzix - Leaf Die
Martha Stewart Punches: Branch, Frond, Large Butterfly, Fleur de Lis, Hydrangea Punch-Around-the-Page
Cuttlebug - Fancy Corners, Chrysanthemum Quilling Kit
Stickles, and Pearls

This is a whopping 6 x 6 Easel Card with drawer. I found a tutorial here to make this card. Wanted to make extra something big enough to put extra flowers in the drawer. I thought this would be a great gift to give to someone who scrapbooks or is a cardmaker and fill the drawer with those handmade flowers. The other idea I had was to give it to a dog lover and put dog bones in the

O.K., Benz has to put the Cuttlebug Quilling Kit on 'the' list. Those flowers remind me of zinnas or Old Maids. This easel card with drawer showcases your talent in a big way. Love the idea of putting bones in the drawer for dog lovers or the handmade flowers...either would be a hit!! Love that dog image.
