Enjoy!

Happy Christmas Eve!  I can't believe its here already!  My parents kept the kids last night so we got LOTS of stuff done!  Most of the presents are wrapped and ready!  I got a fun package in the mail so I had to unpack that and actually felt a little inspired to make a card!  Maile is most definitely one of my favorite designers!  I have really enjoyed her cards this release...well every release...but I am here today with a very Maile inspired card...

Can you believe I cut those flowers out?  GASP!  I know...why didn't I buy the dies?  I do have to say how easy they were to cut out tho!  I layered them with the TANL die.  I cut out several and then cut them apart, rearranged them, turned them over, curled some of the leaves.  I love this look!  Then I added in those gorgeous roses!

All of this is on top of the card base where I used the Quatrefoil die to emboss the card front.  Super easy!  I added a Tiny Tag and a little Twinery twine and done!

I am going to turn this card in over at Wee Memories for their "Anything Goes" challenge!  



I know this should probably be a Christmas card today right?  But the sentiment says it all!  I hope you all enjoy your Christmas Eve!  I hope its a happy one!  :)
