Flourish Frame

Good morning,
I just wanted to introduce myself and thank LisaJane for adding me to her wonderful DT.  My name is Brenda and you can find me at Creativity is a State of Mind.  I am a mom to 2 grown children and an 11 year old at home.  I also have two grandchildren and one on the way in March; my grandson lives in Hawaii (gotta love SKYPE) and my granddaughter here in town.  I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 15 years.  I am very interested in many different mediums. My crafts exist of but not limited to scrapbooking, card making, wedding favors, centerpieces, floral arranging, vinyl homedecor, glass etching, paperclay creations (mainly for scrapbooking and card making) and jewelry making. I dabble in a few more crafty things but I think my list is long enough.  I am addicted to using my Cricut, Gypsy, and Cuddlebug, and I have recently added the E-craft to my room and love it.  SCAL3 is one of my best friends right now.  I would love to learn a bit more about Inkscape, but that will come in time I am sure.
    I am so excited to be here with you and I hope I can inspire you to create something today.  As you know LisaJane has some awesome, awesome cut files and I am so excited to share my first card with you.  Joining Filekutz Designs is enable me to share some more creations with you and maybe inspire you a bit also.

Now here is the card I created for my first DT submission...I hope you like it as much as I do.  I cut everything on my E-Craft and am very pleased with how the scroll came out.
You can find the Flourish frame and flowers here
It's only 99 cents right now, so head on over there and 
grab it and create a beautiful card with it.
I pop dotted the flowers and added
some flat pearls I had gotten at Michaels
a long time ago.  I've been shopping my stash...
The background paper is an embossed
felt like and the teal is also from my stash.
The sentiment is from Sympathetic Sayings.
I decided to make this card for me; to remember that it's not always and end, but sometimes a beginning.  I just have to look for that open window after the door has been closed.  I hope I've inspired you to make a card for YOU!!!  Sometimes we just have to do something for ourselves.

Hugs Brenda
