Pink Chrysanthemum Bunch

Hello friends.

I have a bunch of pretty posies for you.

I hope you enjoy them!

This card is for the Memory Box Challenge.

I used my Zig markers to color one cut of this beautiful die.

When I cut it, I put a piece of Press & Seal behind some mixed media paper
to hold all the little pieces in.

I cut a second bunch from mixed media and let the pieces fall out.

I kinda wish I had put the flowers straight. 

I thought I'd like them at an angle and when I realized I didn't,
it was too late.

I'll have to send it to one of my off center friends :>)

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

So pretty. Love this die. Geesh, another to add to my wish list. You are so good at enabling me to spend my money!! :)

Beautiful card. I laughed about you sending it to one of your off center friends. Then I realized that you might have meant me. :)

I need to get some of that press and seal. Seems to works wonders. I'm always loosing little pieces from intricate die-cuts and could use some help with that. xx

Gorgeous die and such a pretty card. Had a little chuckle about sending this to one of your off centre friends. Maybe if the die cut was put on straight it would become a card for centred friend....LOL x

This flower is GORGEOUS Bonnie and looks wonderful on an angle too! One of these days I'm going to have to get on the bandwagon and try the Press n Seal...sounds like it would save lots of frustration!! :0)
