Cheryl's Challenge card
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all feeling relaxed after the weekend, the weather was lovely here, Paul and I managed an hour or two in the garden yesterday, tidying up flower beds and got rid of the last of the Golden Rod dead stems, they really grew high, I was surprised, we managed to get the back and one of front borders done. I need to do some research into pruning roses before we do the rest of the borders, as they are mostly standard rose bushes, all beautiful with old fashioned rose scent, i think that they have been here for many years so i don't want to kill them off.
Today's card is Cheryl's Challenge card for last and this week, (by coincidence), Cheryl sent it to me mid-morning yesterday, so I looked at it and thought it was for the TicTacToe challenge, using Categories: Flowers/Square Card/Decorative Paper.
In actual fact it was Cheryl being super organised for this weeks challenge, as she was digging into her Lace hoard for the first time in months!!
What were the chances of that happrning!!
Cheryl has used Sue Wilson Hexagon dies to create that pretty frame in the centre of her card, Cheryl has used the frame as the base for her stunning floral arrangement, I love the way you have finished the opposite ends of the arrangement with a 'Cheery Lynne ' flourish die cut a a pearl spray, using both together give a real 'professional' finish to your spray.
Chery has used a beautifully detailed background paper, it has a real 'mixed Media' look to it, which is perfect as a card base layer, as it means you don't have to spend time finding perfect coloured card to mat and layer with, Cheryl said that she had used some of her 'hoarded' lace and an Angel as the finishing touches for this lovely card that is a 60th Birthday card for a friend.
Thank you so much Cheryl for sharing your beautiful card with us. XXX
I hope that you all have a lovely day ladies,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
