What a week!! Such a rollercoaster of emotions with things going on at home and and in my work life!! Suffice to say there has been little time to craft. The card I'm sharing with you today was started over a week ago - but I found time today to finish it off. It's my Mother's Day card for my Mum - she's a bit of a technophobe - so no worries about her seeing this before the day.
I loved the Butterfly and Thistle image I used for the last Crafty Cardmakers Challenge, and decided to use it for this card too - even to the point of painting it in the same colours!!
This time, I decided to leave out the design paper, and used Hunkydory silk art card so I could make a feature of the scroll stamped in the corner. The edge at the bottom is cut using a Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeability, with an insert from the Classic Petal set. The black background and the green mats are both cut from Bazzil cardstock.
The wording was stamped using my Forever Friends Alphabet set, and inked (liked the main image) with Dusty Concord and Bundled Sage DI's.
Hopefully the next few weeks will be a little more settled and I will get time for more crafting!! Here's hoping!!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.
