Card Design: Flowers Bring Smiles Once Again from Nicecrane Designs

http://nicecranedesigns.com/
Happy Hump Day to you all.  It is going to be a busy week as I only have five more days to get all my progressive cards finished and posted about, along with a couple DT posts like this one here.  Today I am going to show you the second thank you card out of over eight that I need to somehow get made, and soon!  I love the Flowers Bring Smiles II collage sheet from Nicecrane Designs sooooooo much that I just had to use one more of the images on it for this particular card.  I've now managed to use three images from this set and I may yet use the rest! 

So I'm not sure who in the hubs' family this one is meant for but I'll figure it out once they are all made.   
  
FRONT
Digital Image Details: 
  • Flowers Bring Smiles II:  For this card I used the image you see on the bottom right hand side of the preview below.  All of these floral images are just so gorgeous and would be perfect for so many different types of cards.  Click on the name or the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.

Embellishments:
  • The little pink half pearls are Crafts brand and were purchased at Dollarama.
Embossing Folder:
  • The card base was embossed using the one of the folders from the Cricut, Paper Lace II set. 

 INSIDE
Digital Sentiment:
  • This fabulous sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  Once again, it is absolutely perfect for these cards since the hubs' siblings are all French.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.

OVERALL
Paper Products:
 
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Pink Buttons collection.
  • Image and sentiment base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The pink cardstock that I used as matting (front & inside) is Michael's open stock scrapbook paper.  
 Challenges I am hoping to enter...
Before I go...
There are always so many wonderful images available at Nicecrane's Designs that I can't leave without sharing some of the others with you.  Sticking with the flower theme, I bring you some Grunge Flowers.  Aren't they neat?  They'd make great backgrounds.  This set contains eight interesting images perfect for card and ATC design.  Be sure to go and check them out while you are at the store (c

Another great set is the Stunning Nature collection.  These images would also make great backgrounds (click on image below to head to its location.)

Well, there is still lots to do this evening so I'll bid you all adieu!  Have a great one!
