I haven't been had much time this week to make cards, what with finishing my old job, and starting a new one, but have had a few crafty hours tonight to make a card for Gail for this month's card swap, whose theme was spring. I have pondered all week about what to make and have come up with this card.
This is an ivory square card, with a matting of gold and ivory. The backing paper under the daisy flowers is from a K&Company Daisy Pad, and the daisies themselves have been made with punches, and the centre is a small punched circle in cream. I have backed these onto small ivory squares made with the nesties on my 'bug', and I have put 3d foam pads on the back of each to give the card a bit of lift. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash and I have added a pearl to the middle of the flower. Struggled to know how to incorporate the word 'Spring', so decided to just type 'Spring is coming...' on the PC in gold and printed it out onto photo paper. I then cut it out and stuck it to the middle of the ribbon. Pretty pleased with the card, and hope Gail likes it too.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge; Allsorts Saturday Challenge; Pink Elephant Challenge; and Creative Cottage Challenge
