Pink Black-Eyed Susan

Finally, I'm back. It has been so busy the past two months in our household but things have slowed down for the summer. It's nice to be able to sit back and relax.

I have been busy making flowers and cards and today I have one of my latest cards to show you. I fell in love with the Sizzix Susan Tierney-Cockburn "Susan's Garden" dies and the Pan Pastel Flower Coloring Kit. So far I have 13 of her sets and I still have 5 more that I would like to get.

Today's project was submitted for the Cuttlebug-itis TOW Rectangles challenge. I used the Anna Griffin "Circular Grid" embossing folder, Spellbinders Labels 18 for the frame,  and Sizzix Black-Eyed Susan die set and Pan Pastels for that touch of extra color on the frame and flower. Normally everyone thinks of the color yellow for this flower, but it also grows in pink. So I thought I would do it in pink and I just love how it turned out.

I was going to add a greeting and bow to the front, but I didn't want anything to interfere with the look of the front of the card. If you could see this card for real, I bet you would be tempted to stop and smell the flower.

I also have made other flowers from the Sizzix Susan's Garden die sets. I have Hibiscus, Tulips, large and small Lily's, Dogwood, Flowering Quince and Forsythia already made. My thought is to make a ton of flowers from these dies and make a floral swag to hang in my craft room. I'll have blooming flowers all year round!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!
