Good news I have got my laptop back and feel better that it isn't taking me over 4hrs to do the blog and I can finally leave comments. didn't realise I would miss it so much.
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend - wasn't the weather great, thought spring was here and now its back to gloomy. As it felt like spring I decided to do a card that hopefully reflected that, also gave me a chance to use some of my favourites things, using several dies and some stash that has been waiting to be used.
Once again I used one of my favourite card blanks as they are so versatile. I found the spots & ladybird paper stock in my stash which I had bought sometime ago but never got round to using (sound familiar). I used grand labels one (another one of my favourites), I used the outer edge of the largest size to create a faux edge in pink card.
I then used Cheery Lyn English Tea Party Doily (cut from Crafters Companion Pearl Card) edged with a touch of spun sugar distress ink (favourite). The stamped image (CC Pearl card) is from a set of clear stamps from pergamano, coloured with promarkers. I used a spellbinders circle die, edged with spun sugar and some twinkles. I used pinflair to lift it slightly from the doily. Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish was used with green bazzill cardstock and placed under the doily.
The flowers were cut from Marianne Craftables (CR1204) using cardstock from my stash and layered to give a flower effect, edged with twinkles and a drop of cosmic pearl in the middle.
To finish I stamped a saying from Flowersoft stamps on pearl card edged with spun sugar. Cut a ladybird from the waste paper and placed it on label.
