Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are at the start of another week, fingers crossed we are on the countdown to Spring, I like March for that very reason, the garden starts bursting into life, this past week I have noticed the birds singing more (well in between rain showers )! There is no better way to start the day than looking out and seeing all the spring flowers and watching and listening to the birds go about their day.
We had a beautifully sunny day yesterday which makes such a difference, it makes you want to go outside, it was a little too cold to dry the washing but still a lovely change to see the sun.
Today's card is one that I made for a very special friend. It was one of those cards that just evolved and worked, I knew it looked ok when I saw Pat's reaction!
The flower image is a brand new Groovi plate, designed by the lovely Tina Cox.
I embossed my image (using Groovi plate) onto pink Parchment, i then turned the parchment over and used an eraser to take some of the colour out of the parchment before adding in a darker pink to the flowers and green on the leaves.
I looked at the shape of the spray of flowers and decided that it would look great with an Oval frame, so I die cut the parchment with my Oval Picot Dies and used the same dies to cut the card base. I mounted the parchment onto pink card to enhance the white embossing and then adhered it to the oval card base.
I am planning on making a couple of cards today, so I will be in my craft room for most of the day.
I hope you have a lovely day, however you are spending it.
Love and hugs to all,
