Flower Scrappy Card

Good Morning Folks! I made another scrappy card. I'm going to be honest with you. . .I have a difficult time putting together scrappy cards. I never can find an appropriate sentiment sticker. . .many of the stickers are typically scrapbook themed sentiments.

Anyway, I found these alphabet die cuts to create the sentiment. The flowers were created using a Sizzix flower die. The designer paper is by K&Co and DCWV. I don't know who the maker of the ribbon. It was just a scrap piece that I had lying around.



I really admire those card makers who are able to make all those pretty scrappy cards with all sorts of embellishments. It's obvious they are seasoned scrapbookers so putting a card in a hodgepodge fashion seem to come easy for them. They use all sorts of embellishments on their cards but they don't look messy. When I try to put a scrappy card with all sorts of embellishments, I don't know where to put them without feeling like the card is looking too busy.

Anyway, just my thoughts about scrappy cards!
