Wrapped Flowers

Good Monday Morning!
Back again with another post at the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.     

Today's card is for Mother's Day, which is fast approaching.  This year it is on May 8th.
Flowers are always such a sure bet for Mother's Day!

I first created a paper cone to place my bouquet of poppies inside.  I used the beautiful Mix N' Match Poppies die from Frantic Stamper.  Gorgeous!  I die cut them out of water color paper and then proceeded to paint them.  Glued several on the cone then layered a piece of tulle, giving more dimension, and then I added more pretty yellow poppies.  Arranged a few of the die leaves around and sentiment tag, Die-Namics, Stitched Traditional Tags.  Decorated the cone itself with Polka Dot Designer Paper, Baker's Twine and a pretty little Heart Charm.     Found some beautiful Designer Paper in my stash with gold accents and created my background.  Sheer Yellow Ribbon and mini Candy Dot for accents.

I knew the cone needed just one more embellishment so I grabbed the Musical Stave die by Amy Design.  I cut it out of Toner Paper and then ran it through my Mini Minc Machine with Gold Foil.....WOW!  The detail is AHmazing!!!

I also added a butterfly using the Butterfly Set # 2 by, Dies R Us.  I cut 2 different ones, one in teal and the other from Toner Paper, again running it through my Mini Minc Machine with Gold Foil.  Another WOW!!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
