CR84FN ... second post

My second card today is for the new colour challenge at CR84FN which is based on this lovely photo courtesy of Leslie at A creative Mint  whose beautiful photographs are so very uplifting ...



I did this card for the family of the friend I lost this week ... the colours just seemed so appropriate


Those pretty flowers are from a sheet of Decoupage that I had from my early crafting days ... somehow I prefer them to be randomly layered rather than on top of each other ... so that's what I did


The background to my flowers is stamped onto white CS with sky grey ink ... and I added some pretty pale pink pearls to the flowers ... did you notice the little heart pin just peeking out too? I've had these for ages and just a simple heart says it all I think ...  The papers and sentiment are from a Perfect Pages scrapbook kit ... and ribbon from my stash ...
So that's it for now ... I hope you are having a wonderful day

Till soon

Wish upon a star ...

It's a wet and cold day here once again ... oh how I wish it were Spring ... I am so looking forward to seeing the fresh green buds on the trees ... but at least the daffodils are slowly pushing their way out of the ground,  the only indication so far that the season is changing ...
I have a couple of cards to post today ... the first one is for the new sketch challenge at WaltzingMouse ...


I've never done a star shaped card before so thought I'd give it a try ... using white CS and some MF papers ...



I also used a glittery star I had in my stash ... along with two different ribbons and a few other little embellishments 


The teenie tiny butterfly is from my digi files ... printed and cut and the sentiment also is computer generated ... the hardest part was the stitching! But I may try one of these again ... 

Back soon
