I decided to make one of these "flower pot" cards after seeing so many beautiful ones posted. I had a hard time making the slant of the pot. I had great directions from Stephanie to follow but I kept doing something wrong. I kept making the bottom of the pot too small. Finally I went back to the "old fashioned" way of making something fit and made a couple of pencil marks and just cut. Sometimes the "old" ways work best. I am still loving this Parisian Breeze paper. The colors in this paper are so soft and easy to work with. Baja Breeze is one of those colors that must be paired with something else to be appreciated. I used my Big Shot to cut out the flowers. The ribbon is the lovely White Organza that I hope comes in many different colors in the next catalog! I am not sure I really like the brown flower, which is why I put it in the back. I am getting some of my challenges done-but I am still behind-oh well! I just need to take photos and post.
