Hello everyone,I am sorry it has been a while between posts but I have been busy catching up on things that don't get done while I am having a bad spell with my M.E. Things build up and then I am playing catch up until it hits me bad again and then it all starts again,but it is what it is and I refuse to let it get me down.
Anyway my card today is for the DT for http://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.co.nz/ again,this months theme is colour/flora
flora tones

I didn't have all the colours in the pallet so I went with the pink and blue. I used my new Tonic topper dies to cut out the pink frame and used one of the topper die cuts that came with the dies,I used a Tonic heart behind it and cut some swirls from the same pink card from the Tonic swirl dies. I cut some flower shapes out with my Brother scan and cut machine and inked the edges in blue and curled the petals and layered them up to get this carnation looking flower which I placed in the center of my bow. I used a nice striped pink background sheet and embossed it with the Sue wilson embossing folder,sorry can't remember what it is called. I don't often do cards with no image on but wanted to give it a try. Pinks are not really a colour I like much so I can't decide if I like it or not,I hope you do or if like me you are not a pink person that it will inspire you to at least have a go at a card with just a sentiment. Hope you all have a good day,take care and happy crafting
