Bloom



'Blooming Images' is the theme of Challenge 85 over at
  Crafty Cardmakers .
We are sponsored this time by Crafts and Me  offering a store voucher for the winner.
Also we have a super prize from a mystery donor.
So please pop over for all the details and see what we have all been making this time.


I used a flower shaped card blank. I won't trouble you with all the joy!!  I had  making an inset to fit this shape. A few choice words, then one of those rare moments,  when you could kick yourself  for not using the shape to make a template and cutting it slightly smaller.
Anyway the card was random stamped with  flowers and a leaf stamp using  Peeled Paint and Victorian Velvet [ also used for shading] distress inks.
The bloom  came from my flower box.

Thank you for stopping by I really appreciate your comments.

  10. A very unusual card and the colours and shape are stunning Yvonne. I can well imagine an inner for this would be a nightmare to make.

  16. Absolutely gorgeous! Love your flower shaped card with a flower topper. Just giggled at your problem with the insert. I would have given up and just put a small label in the middle of the inside, but then I'm lazy, lol
