BLOOMING marvelous



A quick and early post as I have so much to get done this week its unreal! This card is for an 80 year old lady (wonder what gave that away lol). The papers are a lovely download from FredSheSaid and the blossom is from the lovely Jac at Crafters Kitchen. I cute the flower, added some copics and glamour dust and folded the petals. I 3d it all and matted onto a doily. I chopped the leaves a bit and positioned at an angle. The butterfly is paper pieced and I added some glossy accents. I finished the card with faux stitching and sentiments. I have never made a card with a big blossom on before so wasn't too sure about it.


I am entering this into the following challenges:
1. Pollycraft Monday - summer blooms
2. Flutter by Wednesday - paper piecing
3. Allsorts - Birthday
4. Sweet Stampin challenge - make it personal
5. One Stop Crafts - summer breeze
6. Kaboodle - monotone
I would like to welcome my newest follower DONNABABEO. Thanks so much for becoming a follower, you've made my day. Hugs
