Agapanthus Clusters

I feel like I’m right in the center of the flower field. I can almost hear those butterflies fluttering past me. Blog Star Suzanne Czosek (sorry, we had Melinda G. credited earlier, but Suzanne made this cool card) made this incredibly beautiful card. The dark embossed flowers in the background and the light butterflies in the foreground give this card depth. And I just love the gear. Just like something you would find in a timeless, overgrown field. Great job!

“I Love the beautiful clusters of Agapanthus and the fact that half of the flowers are outlines and the other half are solid. It allows me to play with different techniques including using the watercolors and the textured embossing powders together.” - Suzanne Czosek

  2. This card is truly beautiful. I love the outlines and the flowers that have been watercolored. My favorite thing that you did is probably one of the least noticed…inserting the brads at the edges of the bracketed sentiment and wrapping the twine around them. I love how that gives the feeling of an extra layer without actually being one.
