Such a lovely floral Bouquet...

Hi and thanks for looking in today...

Hope your week is going well, I had a lovely trip to C.J.CardCraft this morning...and such a laugh with Glynis and her workshop ladies...oh and gentleman....I really couldn't miss you out , Chris...

Then I had just time to drop some clean shirts off with Mikey..( .plus some food, ) and back home to walk the dogs...

A blog post now whilst I have a tea break and then Karl will be back from South Wales...and I have some Salmon ready to cook for his meal...

It is such a sunny day today so I thought it was appropriate to share this card with you...

I do love cards that cheer me up and make me smile...

It uses the lovely stamp set designed by our very own Julie Owens....the Silk Ribbons Bouquet...how delightful is this stamp...and it comes with masks too....

I started with a piece of Gelli card .....and stamped the main image...

Next came some background using Jo's Bubbles Stencil...

I randomly stamped the flower heads on another piece of card...and edged both with a black Sharpie pen...

Next I stamped more flower heads and extra bows....adding some pattern with the little stars...from the Wee Fairies...

Then colouring , cutting out and some decoupage...

How lovely does this look....The little drops of Liquid Pearls just set everything off...

 

I coloured the background flowers too...Note I always lean on a piece of kitchen roll ....it really is worth it , then you don't spoil your work...

And when it was all assembled this is what we have..

 

And the back of the card had to look good too...

Thanks for looking in....might even get another lot of washing on the line....I need to make the most of this weather...I bet it won't last....

Enjoy your evening...

Much love and hugs...

Jo.

  3. This is a beautiful card loving the border using the smaller stamps. I remembered to get my rock salt when I was shopping so will be able to make some inky backgrounds now. XX
