I finally made this card !!


Good Morning Ladies, 

I didn't get to welcome May yesterday with it being Sue's Birthday.  So welcome May, this is the month that vegetable gardening really gets going, another week or two and the vegetables we started growing indoors can be put out.  The biggest excitement of this month is my sisters Wedding,  I am so looking forward to sharing her special day with her. 

Today's card is one I have been meaning to make for months, I bought the Sizzix die ser that the vases and branches are from on FB selling page for £5, I then saw Christie Stokes card using it on Pinterest,  I loved that background die too, it took me months to find it though,  in the end it was our Sonia that found it for me, its a Memory box die.      I used Pumice stone Distress ink to colour the pot, I stamped some dots in same colour to give some more texture,  to make it look more like a vase I used Versamark and clear embossing powder, having the glazed look makes all the difference.

Hopefully you can see the glazed look in this photo.  I haven't decided what sentiment to put on it yet.     Thank you Chrissie for your inspiration. 

I hope that you all avoid the storms, we are forecast Thunder, lightning and heavy rain today ! 

Sending Love & hugs to all of you,

Sandra xxx
