LILAC Card

This was my first attempt at making the beautiful Lilac card I saw on Joanne's blog "Mainly Flowers" http://joanne-mainlyflowers.blogspot.com/ I used Joanne's format, but don't have the book it originated from (Leone Em of Australia's "Floral Punch Craft V").

It was a little tedious, but very fun to craft (took an afternoon)...I used my Cricut Expressions with the Accent Essentials punch and took about 235 mini flowers to finish. And I'm not sure how Joanne crafted the cones, but I used styrofoam cones cut in half lengthwise. The leaves were also from the Accent Essentials, and I scored/creased leaf veins by hand using a bone scoring tool and the indentation on my Fiskars paper cutter. The background punches used were Martha Stewart's Arch Lattice Edger and Fiskars Effervescence Border. The script and inside of card was not done yet in these pictures. This will be for my Mother-in-law's September Birthday - hope she enjoys - I know she loves flowers and being crafty at heart, I know she will appreciate the love that goes in this card for her!
