Hello Crafters,

    I made this card for a challenge using a Susan's Garden flower. I have a couple of  her flower kits, but really have never succeeded in making one so last night I sat and decided I was going to do it.  this is the card I made using Susan's Garden flower "Helleborus".


I tried to keep the card simple and sweet .... OK I used a piece of card stock from the HFC Posy Patch paper collection as the background, and the opposite side for the die cut Decorative leafy frame. Yellow and cream card stock for flowers. I know my Susan's Garden flower looks somewhat different from Susan's I think I got close for a first time. 
Products used: Heartfelt Creations - Decorative Leafy Frame HCD 731 (sold on line store at CCNS)
                                                       Vintage Floret HCD 727 - yellow flowers
                                                       Paper collection "Posy Patch" -sentiment is from same collection.
                       Tim Holtz Distress Ink "Peeled Paint"
                       Susan's Garden - Helleborus flower kit 658862
                                                  Pollen - Red T4647
                                                              Orange - T4646
                      Pan Pastels - Greens and yellows
                      Kaiser Pearls Red
                      Bow -ribbon from stash
                      Glitter - Green
                      Rain Drops - Liquid Glass

            You can't make a Susan's Garden flower with out adding her famous ladybug. Mine is hard to see here but I love making the ladybugs.
