Greetings blog friends, I’m peeking in with a card and a quick post for my card making idea today. Changing up a little bit from my run on pink, I knew I wanted to showcase this gorgeous Prima Flower, so I dove in with a bit of purple. It’s centered on a background made from JustRite Lacey Tiers Die Cut Template which I designed and the filigree corners on the edges are the smallest die from Spellbinders Captivating Squares. I don’t have precise measurements to share today but the square 6″ x 6″ format makes it a fairly easy card to make. The Lacey Tiers Template round motif cut alone actually doesn’t cut a circle, it cuts out the center filigree pieces. The circle is cut when you include the outer square motif. For this card I cut the round motif into a square and topped it with the outer motif. This gave me a great layer to raise for a lot of depth from all the cutouts in the motif.
A multi-loop bow with a centered button and a tag from Spellbinders Back to Basic Tags makes way for a sentiment that doesn’t cover the beauty of the awesome flower and intricate die. I reached for JustRite Large Elegant Sentiments; Get Well is a sentiment I don’t use nearly as much as I should.

I’m already enjoying the glorious turn from summer to the next season. I won’t say fall yet, but I love this shoulder before the chill starts to blanket the evening. I keep finding myself outside just mesmerized by the difference in the light and the fresh air. It rained almost every day this summer so this is a wonderful reprieve. Even though I’ve not been here this week, I’ve been a busy girl. In fact, I have some rather cool news to share on my post tomorrow so I hope you’ll peek in to see what I’m up to :-)
