The other day I was walking to the station and have to admit really didn't want to walk on this particular morning. As I was walking I noticed a small white brick house I don't normally pay any attention to. It is a small cute house that has all these flower pots with gorgeous colourful flowers that really stand out against the white bricks. Suddenly my mood improved as I had found inspiration for my next card and couldn't wait to do my version of this gorgeous little house on a card. It never ceases to amaze me where one can find inspiration.
For this card I created the brick background by cutting out strips of white cardstock and sticking them down on white cardstock to form the design of the bricks, it did take a long time to do this but it was worth it in the end. I made the flower pots out of craft cardstock. I drew the stems and leaves and punched out the flowers which I adhered to the cardstock with dimensional foam, added some clear buttons to finish off. The sentiment has was done on my computer.
I have to do a few Mother's day cards this year. One of them ofcourse is for my mum but the others are for my friends who are not into card making but want to give their mothers handmade cards, think I will be able to get them done on time if I get myself organized.
The Challenges I have included-
Flowers-The Paper Variety
Flowers-Fresh Brewed Blog
My favourite things (flowers)-Amber's craft and stuff
