Flowers


Hi everyone, hope all is well with you. Would like to show you a card I've made for a few challenges. I stamped the flowers in black Memories Ink and coloured with Promarkers.

Inspiration for layout taken from Vicki's Muse #66 card, theme and colours from ColourQ #240, Inkspirational #55 - Pink and Green and STAMPlorations - May challenge: Stamps and Flowers.

This is actually "mark 2" of the card. The first one had some twine and a different sentiment, however after DH told me the sentiment (which was placed just above the flowers) looked like a "weird spiders web" I decided I had to redo it! I have to admit I do struggle with getting a sentiment in the right place so I hope this looks OK.

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day xx

Beautiful card and the placement is perfect. I know what you mean though I always struggle with exactly where to place the sentiment.

Don't you just love husbands and their critique of your crafty work? Sounds like the kind of thing mine would say. Such a pretty stamp and brilliantly coloured..really should get me some of those promarkers. Thanks for playing along at Colour Q this week!
