5th May 2012

Hello again fellow bloggers. Well we are now into May and the April showers are still with us. On the plus side I have just booked two weeks on the Isle of Wight where we will visit my brother and his lovely family.
I haven't managed to get as much crafting done as I would have liked because we have had a lot of hospital visiting but I did manage to creep in there yesterday and make this card.

I would like to enter it for Crafty Anns challenge "Stitching real or faux" and Rainbow Lady's challenge "Memories"
The base card is cream and it is matted with lace type printed card from Kanban . The image is a LOTV stamp which I have coloured using promarkers, it has been cut using a Cheery Lynn  die. The topper has been mounted onto faux wood card which in turn has been matted onto bronze pearlescent card (this is not very visible in the picture) The sentiment has been done with a stamp that I have had for ages and the flower is from my stash


  1. Gorgeous card Trish, love the die cut. Loved it in real life on my birthday card.
