Trendy Touches

One thing I love about paper crafting is the ability to customize cards or gifts for any style or personality. I really wanted to make a trendy card for a stylish gal & had so much fun creating this project!

This flower/vase image from Unity just screamed out to be embellished! The open circles from the flowers were the perfect size to glam up with some of my new Kaiser crystals. This fun leopard-print & hot pink floral paper is from the Peyton Collection by Anna Griffin. (Doesn't it make you want to purr!) ;)

Here's a close-up of my bedazzled bouquet. Mmmm!

For the "belt" - I just cut a small strip of paper... stitched both sides... and then added a few silver eyelets. The buckle is from a hardware kit by We R Memory Keepers.

Thanks for checking out my 'Hot Mama' card! ;) It felt so good to just create something! --- something with no deadlines attached to it. --- the way it should be! Ahhh! I love this hobby! :)
