Flower's in a Vase

This card features a Flower Soft product. Flower soft will help you create beautiful things! I can see so much potential with it and it is so easy. And, the Flower Soft company has given us some wonderful tools to use with their product.

I cut out two vases, curled them around my pencil and attached them with a Therm-O-Web
Foam Square that I cut in half. I used two dies of the Nesties to cut out the frame for it. Using
an Oval and Scalloped Nestie for a background, I then ran the solid color through the Swiss Dots Embossing folder. I cut two bottom borders with the Spellbinders Pieceabilites, and used the Martha Stewart Scalloped punch for the top border. The corner pieces were also cut with the Spellbinders die and accented with some bling. A small bow was attached to finish the card.

The vase looks so real, Joan! I'll have to remember this curling around a pencil idea. Very lovely. BTW, it's hard for me to get anything done when my husband is home, too. I love having him home, but...
