Simon Says Stamp ‘March Card Kit’ Card :-)

Hi all :-) I am here with another card made using the Simon Says StampMarch Card Kit :-)


First of all I screwed up the little glassine bag, I prefer the crinkled distressed look, and coloured a strip of the woodgrain card using weathered wood distress ink.:-) I will link all the products I used at the bottom but just to say that I used the Simon Exclusives Fresh Daisies die, with the flowers trimmed down and used the stems to pop the fussy cut flowers onto. I also used a small tag punch but can't find a link :-)

 I must admit I do quite like this little bouquet :-)

We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

I was unsure about what to make for this challenge,, maybe a tag ?? but then I popped over to the Tim Holtz Blog for inspiration and GUESS WHAT !! He has a challenge asking us to make flowers using his Tattered Florals Die !!  YAY !!


Tim has a fab tutorial using his new Distress Paint’s,,, which I don’t have yet ,, he also used linen and burlap fabrics ,,, don’t have those either ,, so I had to improvise but I am thrilled with how this turned out and I WILL wear it :-)

I attached the flower to a chain but it is removable so I can attach it to a bag, jacket,,, anything really ! :-)  doesn’t it look FAB on my autographed Tim Holtz bag !! a treasured possession :-)
