Take Two - Floral Birthday

Oh  dear it's been far too hot today! Sorry to be a spoilsport but I just don't like the heat and always head for the shade!

Here's a recent birthday make and sort of my version of a CAS card. I used one of the images from LOTV Art Pad set 3 - Wild Flowers. I matted it onto the largest Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles which was cut from plain white card first.  I then trimmed down the image to fit as the die is just that bit too big to cut straight from the art pad sheet which is a shame. The design papers are both LOTV - from the Petal Fresh 8x8 paper pad. The daisies were made using a Cheery Lynn Daisy Strip and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Gems are from stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Lili of the Valley Monthly Challenge - July - Take Two

Try it on Tuesday - Colours of Summer

  2. Hi Louise

    There never seem to be many "in-between" days.

    It is either too hot, too cold or too wet!!

    I like to be up super early in the summer and enjoy the fresh air before the sun heats up.

    Your card is lovely. Great layout and the flowers look beautiful!

    Hope you are having a good week.

    Love Jules xx

  3. I agree with you about the heat! Your card is so pretty (I need to get my hands on some of these Petal Fresh papers!) and I love the die-cut frame - really elegant!
