I needed to make a card for a friends birthday which was yesterday. We were meeting up for coffee and a natter this morning so I took her card with me. I decided to have a go at following a sketch and hunted through my cd's to find some papers to put together.
I needed 4 different ones and wanted a yellow theme. The spotty and the brown leaf are from the Polkadoodle's 'Pretty Sweet' Mini cd and the top 2 are from Say it with Flowers ' Special Moments' cd by Sharon Duncan and Joanna Sheen. The flower depicted is the Marsh Marigold. The sentiment came from the same collection. I added extra embelishments of lace, string and green/brown netting. As these bits were all snippets (I will explain fully on a further post) am entering into Pixies Crafty Snippets.
On reflection the flowers would have shown up better if I had cut out and mounted on sticky pads but hind sight is a wonderful thing. Anyways my friend still loved it and says she can't make cards for love or money but she is a dab hand with a paint brush. You should just see the gorgeous stag picture that she is painting right now!! Makes my efforts look like a 5 yr olds.
