Friends & Flowers


Hello my crafty friends. Hope you are looking forward to another long weekend. Fingers crossed that the weather is kind to us and that we won't be needing an umbrella like the ladies on my card...actually it could be a parasol I suppose!!


I used a lovely Bugaboo image from another recent win (gosh...I'm on a roll!!) and coloured them with Promarkers to compliment the paper. I originally cut the aperture with the intention of using the reverse side but actually decided that the spots looked less fussy so went with them instead. It's raised off the image with foam pads but doesn't show that well.  The punched flowers and inner frame were made from a scrap of pearlescent paper from my bits box. Quite CAS but it actually took a fair bit of faffing!!

I'm taking part in these challenges
