2012 Artisan Award Winner Blog Hop - Project 1

Welcome Friends!! You should have just come from the AMAZING blog of my fellow Artisan, Sarah Sagert.  Her work is WONDERFUL!! (If you started here, keep clicking the "next" button at the bottom of each post, you'll get back around to her, and you wouldn't wanna miss ANYthing!!)

Smiley from millan.netWe are FINALLY getting around to posting our winning Artisan Award entries ... thanks for being patient. You will not be sorry, because everyone's work is just SOOO fabulous ... again, I am honored, humbled and happy to be part of such a wonderfully talented group of people!!

Without further adieu ... here is my first project. Being a "flower geek", this card was VERY fun for me to create. One of my favorite parts about it is the little "ring" behind the centers of the largest flowers ... I punched out a little "donut" from Whisper White cardstock (used the 1/4" circle, then punched it again in the middle with the crop-a-file). I then proceeded to wrap the colored baker's twine that coordinated with each brad around the "donut" before I placed the brad in the middle ... cool, eh? LOVE how it turned out!!

There are so many things I love about this card. The subtle color scheme, the chevron leaves, and my favorite...the bakers twine flower center.
