DCM 'August Flowers'

It's the 2nd day of September and the first dare of the new month so we're looking to the flowers associated with September for our card-making inspiration at Daring Cardmakers, they are:

Asters and Morning Glory

I chose to create some beautiful pink asters and here is my card:


The asters were surprisingly tricky to create, as I kept cutting the petals too long and snipping the flowers in half, but I got there in the end!

I have been waiting to use my new Little Musings 'little jar of' stamps for ages and thought the jar would work perfectly with my little asters. I was desperate to use more ribbons on this card but think the simple scallop lace was enough.

Don't forget to take a look at the rest of the Daring Cardmakers DT stunning cards!

Supplies used:
Cardstock: MME Blush, Bazzill
Stamps: WMS Roses in Bloom, Little Musings Clear Stamp Set - LITTLE JAR OF from the ribbon reel
Lace: 16mm Scallop Lace Cream from the ribbon reel
Other: Distress Ink Antique Linen, Memento Summer Sky
, green wire from paper roses

TFL!
