In Bloom



Don't the weeks fly round, it's Saturday again before I know it and a new challenge at Allsorts where Helen would like to see flowers on our work for her 'In Bloom' theme. Right up my street Helen.

My card is something I made when I was bored one Sunday and I had the urge to make lots of flowers.........as you do. So basically that's exactly what I did using various dies, coloured papers and distress ink to shade the edges, a little bit of quilling...........which I might add is definitely not something I do very often, but I thought it lent itself to the stems rather than more die cut leaves.



I added some pearls here and there and built up the picture onto some neutral coloured DP layered onto the base card.

Have a super weekend everyone.

The deep blue border of the neutral base mat picks up your flowers & leaves beautifully & the quilling definitely adds much more to this than additional die-cut leaves. It's a lovely effect with your floral display - your love of flowers really comes through.
