Die Background Challenge Card
Good Morning Ladies,
I have to say that we were reslly blessed with the weather this weekend, we managed to get loads done in the garden, Paul managed to prepare a large plot ready for planting out some vegetables. It sounds like a quick job but it took hours of rotavating as it hasn't been used as a vegetable patch for many years, so a huge achievement, we went and bought some fertiliser to add as well to give the vegetable plants the best chance.
The girls were glad to be home, looking after a very bouncy puppy for 3 days has exhausted them I think, Becca also lives on a farm beside the Wildlife Park so you get the constant noise fron the many different animals, which probably sounds quite scary at night. Lucy was asleep by around 10pm which is just not heard of, they ssid said they were looking forward to not waking up before 6am to take Benji out for a loo break! A peaceful day alround tomorrow I think.
Today's card is my first Challenge card using a Die to create the background, the background die that I used is from 'Card Making Magic' it's called 'Floral Trellis', it's a beautiful die that Michele kindly gave me. I die some lilac card with it and placed it onto a 5 1/2 inch square card base. The flowers are Honey Doo Spring flowers and I stamped them onto Lilac patterned paper and die cut with matching die, I shaped the flowers and added a touch of darker purple ink around the edges, I die cut some foliage too. I stamped the sentiment onto the same lilac card and die cut with a pierced flag die adding a white mat to lift it from the background.
To finish the card I added some matching pearls onto the flowers and a few more around the background.
I hope you like the card and that it gives you a little inspiration.
I hope that you all have a lovely day today,
Love and hugs to all of you,
