Flowers Galore

Welcome

I had intended to be back sooner than this, but life has been full of the unexpected this past week... 

Some time ago I printed off a freebie from the Retro Cafe Art site, and this year got to use one of the last motifs on the sheet for a card.


I love this panel, but it is in colours out of my usual range, which is why I suspect it was the last one to be used.


I matched the colours for the layered flowers on the corner, securing the layers with a gold brad, and using some leaf shaped sequins for a touch of greenery.


The sentiment was stamped and gold heat embossed on the dp - a sheet from a DCWV Old World Mat Stack.  
The edges of all the layers were sponged with Tea Die DI.


I used a couple of trimmings of the dp to trim the inside of the card


I am linking this to:
(I took the Anything Goes option)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog - may your day be blessed.

Very pretty Maxine. It's so good sometimes to be nudged outside our comfort zone. You should come over and place at International Art & Soul. Our theme is flowers.

The retro-café motif is certainly quite eye catching colours, and what a lovely card you have made with it. Matching it to the flowers was a great idea. I hope all is well with you this week. Love and Blessings. Kate x
