Happy Birthday

Daring Cardmakers
My second card this month as Guest Designer for 

Who or What Do You LOVE

Can you guess my love.....

I love all things Crafty
I love my Garden and Flowers
So in my love for card making 
I can combine both

One of the crafts I enjoy is crochet and have been making market bags lately

This floral stamp is my very most favourite at the moment and I've been using it to make lots of cards.   I stamped this one is Barn Door red Distress Ink a couple of times in my Misti to get the depth, then added details with a sharp black pencil and light green over the stems. I used a yellow gel pen to add the pollen on the stamen.   A heart wrenching decision - to use the decorative curved die to cut away the white card -- but it worked, I really like the result.  Then guess what I attached it to the red card wrong way around so it opened with the flowers down instead of up, then I realised it worked that way too, thank goodness.  To finish I added a red stamped sentiment and attached the label with foam tape.

Please pop over to the Daring Cardmakers blog and check out the fabulous cards from the design team girls... lots of inspiration.
