The theme is Spring Flowers and I went on a floral frenzy! PolkaDoodles Cherry Blossom Lane CD has everything you need for this season... gorgeous blooms, pretty papers, scrumptious colours...oh my! Enough chit-chat, here's my card:
|I started with a layer of that lovely soft pink floral background paper. Then I added a layer of some blue floral paper (to match the blue bow). They look a little pale in the photo, but IRL these are papers are pretty pastels.|
|In keeping with the floral theme I hoisted a bodacious blue floral bow right on top of the card. For balance, I popped up the sentiment on some foam tape.|
|Take a look at those bunnies! Cuter critters under the Maypole you will not find. I fussy cut the flower border and adhered it below the image ...coz it's all about flowers today.|
|And look! More flowers on the inside. This is definitely a card for a girly-girl friend!|
With the exception of the bow from my stash and the printed sentiment, everything else came from the CherryBlossom Lane CD...an absolute bargain, I tell ya!
