Whilst you're there take a look at our new challenge for the next fortnight which is ....
Easter or Spring
This time I chose to work with an image from the 'Yesterday's Memories' CD and went for spring rather than Easter. I always know when spring is on the way when I see the snowdrops pushing their heads through the soil in my garden. I needed a birthday card for a dear lady who lives near my dad. She is a chef and often pops along to see him to take him pies, soups or desserts she has made. He in turn keeps her supplied with fresh vegetables he grows in his garden,
I went with the fresh blue as the main colour and as I hadn't done any decoupage in a while decided to use one f the decoupage images for the centre piece. I surrounded it with a silver frame I had cut from mirror card using a Tattered lace die. rather than popping all the cut out shapes out of the frame I taped them in t give it an embossed feel.
I die cut the flourishes and the words from a bright sky blue paper. the backing paper is from the same CD and I matted this onto silver mirror card and the sky blue card.
It was a really quick and easy card to make but makes me feel that winter is over and we have spring and summer to look forward to.
