It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lyn McAuley our challenge hostess for the month finishes off the month with one last challenge.
In 1995 Massachusetts Governor William Weld declared February 28 Floral Design Day to honor educator Carl Rittner, the founder of the Rittner School of Floral Design. Let’s take this week in the dead of winter to do some paper and ink floral designs!
Of course it isn't winter where I live we are at the end of summer, but it was fun to pull some flower stamps out to play this week.
For my card this week I used the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have been having lots of fun playing with this new die set.
I decided to pull out an older image to use on my card this time round, I am hoping to use a few more older stamps this year ..... but we will see how that goes. This cute Frog with Flowers is an older one from Rubbernecker stamps.
Here is a view of my card taken at a different angle so you can see the tab which opens and closes the piece at the front to reveal the secret message.
This is how my card looks when it comes out of the envelope and it is closed. You then need to pull the tab where it says "Pull Here" to make the frame pop up.
I have kept my card as a flat card rather than one that opens up, I just added the card to the bottom of the card for my sentiment and to hand write a message to whoever ends up receiving this card.
