This card has been half made for some time, sat on my desk, I was undecided about it.
so I made myself sit and finish it somehow, I was all set for putting the sentiment where the flowers
are and the flowers up the top, but I had already done that with the teal card before Christmas.
Anyway here goes, I used Pat's Lyra Die by Creative Expressions and cut a piece of red card, I matted it onto a piece of white card, (this is where I had left it). I then decided that I would put a piece of White vintage seam binding across the top of the card and stick a pearl flower string across it
I stamped my sentiment onto white card and die cut it with the tag from the French Collection Border, Corner &Tag Set by Creative Expressions, and mounted it underneath the bow with foam tape, I always add a little Cosmic Shimmer Glue as well to make sure it stays put, it also helps if you don't get it in the right place first time.
I hope you like it, I would love to hear your comments and stories below, its great to hear how your day has been.
Mine has been fairly uneventful, had a friend pop in for coffee this afternoon which broke the day up nicely, I didn't get much crafting done though, in fact I left my craft room in somewhat of mess as I decided late on yesterday to sort all of my paper flowers, leaves and stamens etc into colours and put them in separate tins, all good in theory until I discovered how many I had, thank goodness for the amount of tins of chocolates we consumed as a family this Christmas, those roses, heroes and celebrations tins have come in very handy!
Lynda I think I need your organisation skills, can you pop round!!!!!
Crafty Hugs to all of you lovely friends,
