Hand picked for you

jsldt11thmay 001


Just a reminder that the Mother’s Day challenge at Just Some Lines  is still open.You could be in the running for a super prize.You need play along with a Just Some Lines image to enter and one random winner will get 4 digi stamps of their choice.It doesn’t stop there tho’ as the Top 3 will get one digi stamp each too!There is a freebie to get you started too or you can choose one from Just Some Lines here.

For my card I’ve used the sweet Mother’s Day -For You by Just Some Lines and coloured it with Polychromos pencils and blended out the blue shaded bit around the image with some low odour oils thinners.The sentiment comes with the digi stamp.I cut a base card out using these fab Go Kreate dies.I actually bought them in the January Sales but have only used them now for the first time.Ooooopsie…I then cut another piece the same size in green card.This means that you have the whole shape on the front of your card rather than the folded edge showing.I also trim a tiny slither off the bottom of the back of the card base for stability.This also makes sure that the original shape isn’t spoiled.I die cut a mat of some pretty First Editions paper and layered a length of satin ribbon over the top before fixing the green piece to the card front.The daisy border has been cut with my new Crafts Too die in green and pink card then I trimmed the flowers to fit over the top.I snipped the border in half to extend it across the width of the card.The sentiment was mounted onto a stamp shape from a Spellbinders set.The rather pretty butterfly was cut from a freebie die that came with a past issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.Some flat backed pearls have been used to embellish.

    This is such a sweet card! It reminds me of a photo I took when my son was about 2 or 3 reaching for a daisy. Thanks for the memory. I linked over from the Simply Create Too challenge.
    Hugs, Antonella 🙂
