Quickie Mini Monday -- Crochet Flower

Quickie Mini Mondays feature a 10 minute-or-less project -- something fast, fun and easy to reproduce and mass produce.

Hi everyone,

Today's inspiration for my cards come from these cute crochet flower I received from Clouds (see her blog here). They're so gorgeous and the colors dictated the choice of pattern paper.

Over a Whisper White card base, I popped a layer of Stampin' Up!'s Early Espresso CS matting two pieces of Everyday Blessings DSP from PapertreyInk.

The sentiment is from the Thank You Kindly Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! and punched out of the Wide Oval Punch.

The little strip of striped paper is also from Everyday Blessings. In the middle of the flower, I added a medium-sized rhinestone from Doodlebug that I was hoarding... I must use the supplies I so urgently needed a few years ago!

Pretty simple cards, but I love the color combo and those crochet flowers are sooooo darn cute and yummy. Thanks again, Clouds!

Have a nice stampin' day! CeeCee
