Hi on this very dull day and a bit on the cool side too. Oh well, not to worry, it means some crafting gets done.
I would like to enter this card into the challenge over at :
Crafting for All Seasons  Challenge #74.  DIES & PUNCHES.

I love the cardstock I hae used for the background, so bright and striking. The brown circle has been die-cut with the Spellbinders TEAR DROP CIRCLES onto which I have added GOLD STICKLES for added texture.
The border has been made using two shaded of GOLD PEARLISED CARD, which has then been punched down both sides with the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT punch.
The flowers are die-cut with the D-Lites BLOOMS 3 and also the SMALL DAISY punch. with the addition of CARD CANDI for the centres.
Finally, I have added foliage die-cut with the D-Lites SPRIGS.
The sentiment says BIRTHDAY WISHES.

Thank you for calling by.
Love Sandra xx

  3. Hi Sandra, I am browsing through your blog and loving it. This card is another beaut. The flowers look lovely against the foliage and I like the asymmetry of the foliage against the symmetry of the flowers. Very creatively done.

    Much love always,
