because nice matters

Sweet little card isn't it?
Hello welcome to my place . Hi and hugs,  Michelle hope your feeling better now .
This will be for Tuesday's  craft day . Well one out of three needed any way so two more to go .
Recipe . Cardstock,.....Certainly Celery, Regal Rose , So Safron , Whisper White and bashful Blue. All SU
            Stamp sets, ......A flower For All Seasons. Tiny Tags , Sweet Little Sentiments
           Inks ,................Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip.
           Accessories,.....1 3/4" circle punch , Brads, Stamp-ma-jig, paper snips , watercolour pencils SU.

Was a little fiddly with the image but the result was pleasing .
I stamped basket onto Whisper White and cut out. Stamped again on scrap Bashful Blue  and Regal Rose and cut out the flower heads only .  I then adhered them onto those,  on first image . I punched circle and adhered image to it . I coloured leaves , basket and bird with the watercolour pencils . Then I added the greeting and the image to the Regal Rose piece.
The So Safron layer  has been stamped  randomly with flower sprig before placing the image tag on  with brads.
I then layered all onto card front.

Sometimes everything just falls into place nicely , yes?
      So , hope you are all heading for a wonderful week . Thanks for popping in . I'll see you again soon , Cheers Shirley-anne

I simply love the delicate look of this card... so pretty and I do like the hand torn effect on the left.
You make beautiful cards, Shirley-Anne.
