Delft Tile

Yesterday's Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers was Lydia Fielder aka Understandblue. She is Community Manager of SCS. She also has talent and a wonderful gallery of cards to case. I chose this card.
I remember when she made her card and I loved her adorable shamrocks. Mine aren't shamrocks but kind of a little Fall flower.

 My card is made from a delft tile tutorial found  in resources on SCS. Lydia used a heart punch to make her shamrocks and I'm using a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die called Contemporary Hearts.
I cut out the hearts, scored each one and turned over for placing. I stamped my background after cutting out my paper and scoring the tiles. Sponging around the tiles was next. I added my flowers, gold brads, twine for stems, a sentiment and called it finished. It was fun and easy tutorial from Julie Warner.

I like your kind of a little fall flower. ;) Maybe a type of crocus? Anyway, they are darling, and the Delft tile effect is so cool.
