Hello everyone!
I have been invited by to join LETS CREATE & CRAFT Design Team!
What a lovely group of ladies!
I want to send a huge 'Thank you' to Eileen Dobson for the invite.
This is a new experience for me and I hope I can learn lots from this new venture along with making lots of new friends.
The challenge for April is ... SEASONAL FLOWERS


I loved making this card as I am addicted to flowers!

To make this card I have used....

White card
Blue vellum
TATTERED LACE Embossing Folder Fretwork Lace
Tiny self adhesive gems
Paper Forget-me-Nots from PETAL LU
Blue striped ribbon
Various files cut out with my Silhouette Cameo

I embossed the layers and made a pocket.
I used blue distress ink on the edges of all the layers.
I cut out a tag and wrote a sentiment on it, tied a piece of blue striped ribbon through the hole at the top and slipped the tag into the pocket of the card.
I made a tiny envelope, inked the edges and popped that in the pocket too.
I stuck fern and leaves to the front of the pocket, stuck several tiny vellum flowers on the leaves then added a clear gem to the centre of each flower.
I then added some Forget-me-Not paper flowers from my stash to form a small bouquet and added a bow in the blue striped ribbon.
I added some butterflies to various parts of the card.
On the back of the card I added an easel stand.
The stand will fold flat so the card will fit nicely into an envelope for posting.

I hope my card gives you lots of ideas and inspiration
I also hope you will join in our challenge at LETS CRAFT & CREATE and be in with a chance of winning the fantastic prize which you can read about on Lets Craft & Create blog.
