Floral Theme

I 'found' these two stamped and die cut flowers and a leaf amongst the bits and pieces littering my work space along with some scraps of blue and green card with of course the inevitable pieces of white - always plenty of those around.  Far too many to be hoarding really if I'm honest but 'old habits' and all that.  Anyway I've put together a card with a bit of a Spring feel about it matching up with the colours outside the window at present although it has been coming over dark and chucking hail-like showers at us.

Started with a piece of toning background paper remaining from a pad I probably bought years ago; cut a couple of circles, a square and a birthday sentiment.  Once assembled I thought it just needed a little something more so stamped and punched a couple of small butterflies and tied a little blue bow using organza ribbon finishing off with blue sparkly gems as flower centres.

  1. Pretty card Val like the combination of the circles and the square it makes a lovely design


  2. A pretty card made from all those handy scraps. I had a destash at the weekend on my desk and a small pile has appeared again on my desk already.! Hugs Mrs A.
