So Very Happy........



Hi Blogger's,

I wanted to share a card I've made ready for a friend who is about to become a Grandmother for the first time. I made it to the sketch over at STV so it will be my late entry over there too!

I've stamped this little image from the new Stamp TV Kit called Spring Mix, onto Watercolour paper and coloured it with Inkadinks. Then carefully cut it out.

My base card is GKD with a layer of DP from Kaisercraft the Gypsy Sisters Collection.
The punched edge was done using a Martha Stewart garden trellis punch, with some of Martha's ribbon added.
The image is popped up with fine foam tabs onto a circle cut with a Spellbinder die......and wait for it...... I sponged around the edge a little too!! So brave!!

Three flowers from Annabelle Stamps were added after they too were sponged and for the centres I added Kaisercraft pearls. To complete my card I added two more pearls top right.

I can never decide which angle looks best so I've put them both up here, though this bottom one looks slightly out of focus.....Not too sure why !

Have a great day all till next time....
