In full bloom


Could not resist this week's papertake challenge, luscious lime and lilac, two of my favourite colour combinations. I have made this card many times before but never is these colours and I think it works really well. This is a great card for all occassions, Birthday, Thank You, Get Well, Mother's Day. The flowers were cut out by the Cricut, but the Paper Shaper 'Retro Flower' punch works just as well and is the prefect size. You can even make the leaves from the Retro Flower punch, which is what I have done here, by cutting each petal to a point at the centre of the flower. One flower will give you 5 leaves. The vase and flowers have been stuck onto a tall thin card approx. 6.5cm in width by 20cm in length.


Thanks for looking.
