Happy Friday, all!!!  Hope all's well and that you're ready for a wonderful weekend!

Well, I have another card using the flowers I made earlier.  This one was an experiment of sorts.  I don't like it nearly as much as my last card (which I really love and had such fun doing), but I do think this one is  "interesting".   Besides, at least, I'm getting to use all these flowers I made earlier.

On this particular card, I also used the scraps of material leftover from the flower instead of just discarding a beautiful strip of material.  I also used an old button which had lost it's rhinestone from the center; so, I filled the center in with 2 complementary shades of Stickles, let it dry and I loved how that old button turned out.  Of course, I just love Stickles too, can't you tell?  And, by accident, while looking through a pile of "stuff" trying to find the button, I ran across the beads at the top of the card which just happened to pick up the colors in the flower!  Now that was really a pleasant coincidence!!!

I told you this was an interesting card, didn't I?  Let me know what you think of it!  I'm really curious!

NOTE:  As an aside, and so I don't forget, I had promised I'd do a cut.file for that 5" box several posts ago using the Plantin.  I did update the cut.file to include the Plantin cut.file.  If you're interested, you can return to the post and download (or re-download ), or wait until I post it on my sidebar to download directly from 4Shared.

Well, I guess that's it for now.  I'm going to check to see if I have new contributors to play with me for Showcase #12!

I'll be seeing you!
