Tuesday Trigger: A Burst of Blooms

I love the bright coloured crocheted flowers in this week's Tuesday Trigger inspiration picture at Moxie Fab.

This is one of the rare times when I've looked at a challenge and known right away what I wanted to do.  My colours ended up slightly more muted than those in the picture - that's what happens when you base your colour choice off a poor print out instead of the picture on the computer screen!  One day there will be a laptop in the Craft Cave so I can avoid this issue...  :)  I punched holes in my flowers to mimic the crocheting and I cut one edge of the card along the flower shapes to match the edge of the blanket.    
Supplies: Cardstock: PTI, Bazzill & Paperbilities; Stamp: PTI; Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black; Dies: Nesties Blossom Two

I love the punched holes - too perfect! And the teeny sentiment tucked into the flower centre is just right :)

I love how the flowers go over the edge of the card...well done with the TT!

Cute, Jen! Love the way you punched the holes -- and having the flowers kind of hang over the edge of the card was ingenious. Great use of the inspiration!
