Prickley Pear Card


Hi and Good Morning everyone,  Alison here today :)
My card today was created using a mix of wonderful stamps and dies from Prickley Pear, and of course some stunning Cheery Lynn Designs Dies.
I started off with a 6 x 6 inch kraft card base and layered green bazzil and K&Co papers.  I cut the Dainty Dutch Deco Frame out of white bazzil and also the gorgeous City Girl Edger Border.  I stamped the You Make Me Bloom sentiment, and added the Celtic Heart.
I then had fun making the beautiful flowers using matching stamps and dies from Prickly Pear.  I cut 5 flowers from lilac bazzil card and then stamped the flowers onto lilac vellum.   This made the image really easy to line up with the dies and they cut beautifully!
I added some olive branch leaves, dimensional leaves, ribbon, pin and what is rapidly becoming my signature finishing touch, the gorgeous butterfly.
All dies and stamps used on this card are:

Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps
