Carnation Creations

Well the weather has returned to seasonal temperatures, but the sun is nice and warm...maybe you can find a little nook to curl up in with a good book. I am reading 'Catching Fire', the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I really want to see what all the hype is about, so I borrowed the books from my niece. Ummm, I don't really have an opinion yet. I do appreciate the fact that there is no swearing in the books.
Now onto my card. This is the first card I have made using spellbinders Carnation creations dies. The leaves are a sizzlit die. I inked the flowers up a bit, but I think they are supposed to have a more crushed look...more folded upwards. But then how will it fit in an envelope? Oh well, not bad for a first try....maybe a bit too much purple though!?
I picked up some fun 'new-to-me' goodies at the SGD garage sale on Saturday, so off to my craft room I go!


  1. Love it, it is just perfect! Flowers, pink and purple, the greatest combo!

  2. That is SO pretty! I love the lattice along the sides of the panel - it looks like a real lattice with the flowers and leaves climbing up it - and makes me long for warm summer days again - like last week!

  3. Thanks for sending it to me ... it is so very beautiful ...
    let's have a phone visit soon.
