Postcard from Charleston!



This card is for Cosmo Cricket's challenge to make handmade flowers and Card Pattern's sketch challenge and Wee memories challenge to use green.
 I couldn't help but make another one of those flowers I've written about  before!! -I've fallen in love with them (-:. It is simply diecut flowers - different shapes and sizes, held together with a brad and then drenched in water, squeezed and modelled the way you want it before being left to dry. I've linked to a great tutorial for it in one of my earlier posts)
For this card I used papers from Cosmo cricket's Honey Pie, Circa 1934 and Mitten Weather. The embellishments are from the GREAT Circa 1934 line which I'm also in love with - guess spring is here!!! (-;!
Have a great Day!
/Karin

Holy moses, Karin!! That flower looks completely store-bought, only better! Love it! That is a great card, I'm particularly fond of anything postage stamp/postal/letter writing, you know, that type of stuff, so I LOVE this card!!
