You Make Me Happy

Mornin' all!
 
Sorry I've not been around for a couple of days, haven't been feeling 100% (finally gave in to the cold bug that's going around - boo yah)
 
Any hoo! Did manage to get another little card done. So here we go...


 
What you need...
 
Stamps: Fanfare - Avery Elle
Dies: Grunge Flower #1, Grunge Flower #2 & #3 - PaperArtsy
Punches: 1.5" circle; corner rounder
Card stock: lime, turquoise, orange
Ink: Key Lime, Sea Breeze, Persimmon - VersaMagic; Onyx Black - Versafine
Resin flower, turquoise
Crochet cotton, white
Adhesives
 
What you do...
 
Create a top fold 12cm x 15cm blank and round the bottom corners. Stamp the scalloped border along the top of the blank with Sea Breeze. Repeat with the Persimmon and Key Lime. Stamp the sentiment in black in the lower left corner.
 
Die cut the largest flower in turquoise, the medium one in orange and two leaves in lime, also punch a circle of lime card. Scrunch them all up and assemble, catching some strands of cotton between the orange flower and lime circle. Glue the resin flower in the centre. When dry, attach to the right of the blank at the lower edge of the scallop border.
 
There we have it, another quick and simple card. I think the colours are so fresh and spring like. I apologise for the photography (just can't seem to get it right these days) it really doesn't do the card justice.
 
So that's me for now. I'm going to make a fresh hot lemon and honey drink, then get on with my Crafts Beautiful commission.
 
Thanks for dropping in. xxxx
