Spring sunshine

 
Good evening! Seems ages since I had time to blog a card...don't know where all the time goes! I don't even go to work anymore...too busy enjoying myself!!!:) I have spent quite a bit of time lately with my gorgeous granddaughters, and of course, my lovely Mum - much nicer than going to work!
I also spent a bit of time attempting to sort out some of my craft stuff, a kind of vague attempt at spring cleaning, but I kept finding stuff I'd forgotten about which distracted me....completely.
I found a pad of the most gorgeous papers by Heartfelt Creations so I stopped to make this card. I used just one of the sheets of paper, which is doublesided, cut 2 squares and a circle. I distressed the edges of the squares and layered them together and embossed the circle. The lovely East Wind image, is printed on kraft and coloured with pencils as I wanted a soft look for this design,
 then part die cut and part fussy cut. I cut loads of the flowers from the remains of the paper and layered them to give some dimension. I just added a decorative corner, a sentiment tag (LOTV) and some faux stitching.
 
Might have another attempt at tidying later.....
Thank you for taking the time to visit....here's hoping your days are filled with sunshine!
Chris
