Flower Soft Goodness!

What better way to start out the first Monday of 2010 than with a Flower Soft blog hop! Happy New Year to YOU!
For today's creation, I chose to use one of the darling Hedgerows from the Hedgerow Friends With Love Card Toppers pack. I cut her out and covered her fur with Nut Brown Flower Soft. I then added Baby Pink and Russet Red to the little hearts on the envelope she is holding! I also added a clear heart sticker to the envie! The sky is created with my SU Cloud, Moon, and Stars template, an oldie but goodie! She's ready to be placed in the gate opening!

I used my Flower Soft stamp set, "The Gate" to create the fence and gate. I know! Flower Soft has stamp sets TOO! Oh, what a great surprise!!! A punched heart, tied and placed on the gate with a brad carries the heart theme from the front to the inside of the gate! Christmas Green and Summer Mix Flower Soft is added to the bottom card front. An adhesive pearl serves as the gate door knob. Papertreyink velvet flowers are added to the base of the card front as well, after I added a touch of Flower Soft to each center! I love how this little touch of Flower Soft adds dimension and color to the card front! To adhere all the Flower Soft colors, I utilized my Flower Soft glue. Be sure to check out the other Flower Soft designers to see what they have been up to! Enjoy the inspiration! Sharon Johnson Deb Saaranen Jeanne Streiff Jennifer Buck AJ Otto Barb Schram, that's ME!
