Random Acts of Kindness

Here's a darling image today from Robin's Fetish stamps called Daisy Days.  I made this card for tomorrow's challenge at Monday Greetings Challenge.  The theme is to use flowers and create a spring theme card and of course, always add a greeting to the front of your card for the challenge.

So what is your favorite embellishment on cards?

I have to go back and forth between dies, ribbons, and buttons.  I also love brads ooo and flowers. Well, I am not sounding very decisive am I?  I guess if I had to put them in order, I would say I almost always use dies to cut out my images (but not necessarily as embellishments).  As embellishments I would say in this order: Buttons, flowers, brads, lace/ribbon.  How about you?

  1. Cute card, Holley! I like the step style! I enjoyed reading about your favourite embellishments. If I'm making a CAS card, my favourite embellishment is die-cuts, sequins or gems. For a more layered and embellished card, I love adding die-cuts, flowers, butterflies, ribbon, and charms. Great question!

  2. such a cheerful card with that fun fold!

    almost every card I make has vintage buttons and ribbons or trims of some kind on it. :) and usually the more the better!

  4. Oh, I love this card. It's so bright and positive!! And great shape too!
    If die cuts count as embellishments, I'd have to say those as I use them on *all* of my cards, but otherwise my favourite embellishments are flowers, lace and ribbons.
    Hugs! xx

  10. This is such a cute Card. I love your use of embellishments. And the image is so cute. I like using dies myself. I would have to say my favorite embellishments to use right now would be wood veneer, die cuts and flowers. I also like gems and brads and ribbon depending in the card I am making.

  11. Love this image and card Holley! I very rarely make a card without a die cut on it. I can't afford to. I spend so much money on dies.

  17. A fabulous card Holley. Great design and wonderful colours.
    My Top Three favourite embellishments would have to be - in no particular order - ribbon, lace and flowers. Die-cuts and punched shapes often sneak in too. I'm useless at CAS cards, lol xx

  27. Adorable card! I like to make my cards flat usually because I send them in the mail so often. So I punch snowflakes or hearts or stars. But I do love brads and self-adhesive rhinestones. I have a ton of buttons but very seldom use them.
