I added a pocket and slipped two cards into it.
I added a twine bow to the top left corner and added a gorgeous flower over the top.
At the bottom I placed a frame around a sentiment.
I added some lace across the bottom and tied some ribbon through the top to make the tag complete.

So here is my DT inspiration card....

I used layers of maroon and black to create this car card.
I just used a plain, simple sentiment as it was a male card.
Men dont seem to like their cards too fussy lol.

I hope there will be lots of entries again this month
And I hope too my card gives you just a little bit of inspiration.

I look forward to once again seeing all your entries.

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.
I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful entries.
Thank you for visiting my blog and good luck to everyone who enters the challenge.

So this is my newest make and my first attempt at the vintage/shabby chic style card.
The card itself was from a tutorial by TERESA ALLDAY and I would like to thank her for sharing her work and tutorials so I can learn and get inspiration from her.
I welcome all your comments but please be gentle with me lol.

I used papers from SCRAP & CRAFT
Petaloo flowers from SCRAP & CRAFT
Embellishments and lace trim from SWEET PARIS collection from DOVECRAFT

I am fairly pleased with the end result considering it is a first attempt.
This will be going off to USA for a young ladys 18th birthday.
I hope she likes it!!

So its been a while since I posted here.
Lots been going on and I get sidetracked so easily when browsing I forget what I originally set out to do.
But Im going to try and keep this up to date as much as possible :)
