|JAI52 - Sketch|
I've used a lovely set of 6" x 6" papers from My Mind's Eye called Quite Contrary; I got this pack free with Cardmaking & Papercraft last year. It has the most lovely colours. I selected three sheets, used the green to cover the card base and then used my Spellbinders dies to cut out two layers. I put some lovely green satin ribbon around the smallest layer. To cut the flowers I used my Woodware flower punches. I then made the flowers by layering up from biggest to smallest flower. I added some lovely pink gems to the centre of each flower and finally, I added a greeting. This card is going to my Mum - just because!!

I noticed just now that I've two new followers - so I'd like to say Hi and Welcome to Natalie and Queenie Jeannie. Kathryn starts at a new drama/singing/dance club tonight - she's so excited, but it's a late finish, so I'm not sure whether I'm going to be able to play in my craft room again later. So this is likely to be all for today. Do drop by again tomorrow.
