and here is my take...
I used some beautiful BG sweet threads 6x6 paper, green tara roses, rhinestones and butterly wire all available over at The Stamp Spot online store, the stamp and sentiment are both from stampin up, and I did a little machine stitching around the sentiment since I had my machine out anyway!

An old technique

Thanks for stopping by this afternooon, I'm here to share a card inspired by the new sketch over at CPS using some beautiful BG Sweet Threads 6x6 paper from The Stamp Spot online store. I've also used an old technique I discovered over at the blog of the marvousley talented Rae Barthel, turning circles of paper cut with spellbinders nestabilities into these beautiful spiral flowers.Quick easy and loving the outcome everytime!

Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful start to the week! Ours was a very cold one this morning, light rain during the night and a frost this morning, and a layer of ice covered the cars in the driveway and the grass on the backyard... but there will be worse to come! So loving the wood heater this time of year, very relaxing sitting in the lounge keeping warm of an evening

Well thanks for stopping by today, would love it if you could leave me a comment so I know you stopped by, that way I can pop over and visit you too!
