Wow - the sun is out!! Loads of grey clouds mind you, but at least some sunshine for a while!
My card for today then has been made to showcase one of my latest Flower digital images, the Hyacinth. If you like it you can purchase it now in my store, Delicious Doodles.
I followed a sketch from Sketch and Stash, but turned it sideways to get the image the right way round. I didn't use a sentiment either, hope that's acceptable. . .
I have used up some of my very ancient linen effect cardstock for the base and for some of the punched flower petals, along with some almost as ancient pearlescent lilac for the strip at the side and more petals. The dotty buttons and dotty bow are by Papermania, and are from my latest purchase at the local craft shop
This also fits a few more challenges too. DU2DS want to see 'flowers' along with a digi-image. Simon Says Stamp want 'buttons, bows, and bling'. Crafts and Me want to see 'sparkle'. I have added some stickles to the punched flower petals, and some gems at the top. Delightful Sketches and Challenges want to see us use our punches. I used a variety of flower punches, and also a Martha Stewart border punch. Charisma Cardz want a 'girly card with flowers', and at Cute Card Thursday the challenge is to 'make your own'. Well, I have made my own flowers, and the border and the image is my own sketch too.
Phew! Right, now, as our school have decided to take a long weekend because of the Bank Holiday (!!??!!) I now have to drag myself down to the blooming park with the wee one - ugh! Much rather be crafting. . .
