It was my turn to choose this week and we are using an image from Floppy Latte Designs called Simple Framed Flowers. It is such a very elegant design and great for any occasion. In this instance I chose to make a Thank You card for a friend’s Mother in South Africa as she will be playing host to us all for 2 weeks.

As this post goes live I will be in Johannesburg having spent 5 nights at the Kruger National Park in South Africa (as long as I haven’t been eaten by a lion or something!). I found out what Hester’s favourite colours are and have coloured this up using them.

I created a second layer of just the flowers on their own and these are mounted with 3d foam and have glossy accents on them. The image has been matted on Kraft paper and then added to glittery paper from a First Edition pad. The trim is metallic with small sequins on it and is the perfect match to the colours. I used a glittery fabric butterfly sticker and added it to some scrap red card. I trimmed around it adding some gems to the body and mounted on 3d foam.

The sentiment is rub on’s from K & Co that I have had in my stash for at least 8 years. I am really trying to use things that I haven’t even see for a good many years as you tend to use what you can see more easily don’t you?
