Nowadays I don't generally buy craft magazines, but I just had to rush out to get this month's Quick Cards Made Easy when the lovely Dawny P mentioned that the free gift was an incredibly pretty Pink Petticoat paper pack. I actually went out specially at lunchtime on Tuesday when it went on sale ... and boy I wasn't disappointed, the papers are really yummy!
So I decided that for my first card I would go with the theme of quick card made easy. I was further encouraged by the fact I bought a doily die yesterday, which struck me as a fabulous but easy focal point for the card. I cut the shape out using a fabulous pearelescent white card, but unfortuantely the poor light doesn't really show that up in the pictures.
It is unusual for me to use a sentiment as the focal point of my card; but I thought this fancy PB sentiment would work with the papers and a liberal sprinkling of flowers plus a punched butterfly. This card really was very straightforward - I won't lie, it still took me over an hour, but that was primarily because I sat riffling through my bag of flowers for about half an hour with a daft smile on my face lol!
