A friend of mine has asked for a card for her mum, so this is what I made:
here, (I checked and it deffo says you can case her stuff!) I am going through a phase of loving this whole thing of a sentiment with a lot of white space, but on a scalloped shape, so there may be more of these to come. It's really made me realise I don't have many exciting sentiment stamps. I'll have to rectify that, won't I? (*Giggles*!)
I've used a different embossing folder for my background. All the pink cardstock is Pretty In Pink. The flower is punched out with my posy punch. I stamped the posy punch flower onto white card, cut the centre flower out and propped it up in the centre of my pink flower to add a bit of depth. I added pink ribbon instead of yellow, largely because the bow was already tied for me! (You don't buy a dog and bark yourself, do you?) I kept looking at it and wondering where I'd seen it before, when I remembered it had been on my birthday cake. I should have entered this card in one of those challenges where they want you to recycle something on your card. Whenever I see those I can never think of anything!
I punched out the butterfly with my Flight of the Butterfly punch, stamped it and glued it in place with Crackle Accents, so it stands up perfectly.
Well I'm off for a whizz round your blogs to check out your lovely creations. Thanks for popping in today and thankyou so much for your comments, they really brighten my day.
