Good Morning Ladies,
It hardly seems possible that we are leaving the day after tomorrow, the week has just flown. Lucy took me out yesterday afternoon to try and find some more Shorts and t shirts as mine are all a bit too big, it was a big old waste of time, everywhere has their Autumn/Winter clothes in now, we tried about 5 different places including M&S and Next, M&S had a sale on but it was like a jumble sale and although I was desperate to find something I wasn't that desperate that I was prepared to go elbows deep with a crowd of savage bargain hunters! So I am going to try and find a narrow belt that might hold up some of my shorts! I can live with a baggy t shirt!
Today's card was made using the flowers that I shaped in the Heartfelt Creations Flower shaping Mold. I had used an offcut of Berry Burst card to see if the tool would work with different weights of card, non of the flowers that I have used for this card are a selection of random punches and dies, as I was also wanting to see if the Mold only worked with the dies that came with it, as you can see if works with any flower die cut or punch, The large flower is the Stampin Up Petal Punch, the smaller ones are a combination of the Stampin Up Petite Petal Punch and Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Thinlits.
The card it self is made using Stampin Up Berry Burst card and Matching Designer series paper, that I embossed and then layered up. I used a Joanna Sheen Lace die and the other side of the DSP for the lace die cut, then I added a Leafy Swirl, die cut in Old Olive, the leaves are die cut from the same colour paper, I coated most things with Wink of Stella Glitter, which gives the leaves a realistic looking sheen, I arranged the flowers with the leaves and some little pink stamens. To finish the card I stamped the Happy Birthday from Teeny Tiny Sentiments, I used the matching punch to cut the sentiment and added it to the card.
I am quite happy with how it turned out, I hope you like it too!
