Card making to the extreme

All I can say is I am so happy to be blogging again and the main reason for this currently is I am working on an order of 75 cards for a lovely lady I met at a market I did sometime ago. She and her mum were so enthusiastic about my cards, I really enjoyed talking to them. Unlike, a lot of people who often say they will be in contact and then you never hear from them, these two ladies actually did contact me and I have been doing custom orders for them ever since. The cards for this order had been designed ages ago and saved on our hard drive but there has been a problem with this drive and we have lost all the designs that were originally done. I have to admit I got totally lazy to design the cards again but after a friendly reminder from Kanchan I had to get to work. I have been making cards following various challenges which have come in handy to come up with a variety of designs.

This card was made using the CASE Study inspiration photo, at 3 am yesterday I needed something to stir me on and this photo did just that. I used my recently purchased didgital stamp from Ginger World, Etsy. The card was designed on photoshop, printed on my PC and I added my new Prima, Say it in crystals to finish the card off. I love the layout of this card and it will be a good way of using the many flower images that I have.
