Morning Glories and Asters

My friend Sharon who is on the DT of Daring Cardmakers said they were having a dare over there to use September's flowers - Morning Glory and Asters and she was sure I had some of those!  How right she was.........

Morning Glory stamp by Flourishes, sentiment by There She Goes and Papertrey card and ribbon.  The layout is from Clean and Simple blog - FTL 156.





I thought that the pink flowers on the card below looked a bit like asters - spiky petals - but after I had spent ages choosing buttons for the centres and sticking them down I googled asters and found they had yellow centres so along with the black leaves I used some artistic licence!




When our Papertrey parcel arrived Sharon and I had a big die cutting session with each others dies - the lovely large one here is one of Sharon's that I love - I think it's by Tim Holtz - all other supplies from Papertrey.

Thanks as always for stopping by.

Wow Chris both cards are gorgeous, I love the layout of the first card, and I think that greeting stamp might have to go on my wish list, and I love the bright magenta colour scheme and those flowers, so effective with the black and white very striking. I'm glad I told you about this weeks dare - two amazing entries! Sxx
