International Ambassadors Blog Hop ...

Hi Everybody,

It's time for another informal blog hop with the International Ambassadors and this time we are going with the theme of "Spring".  I hope you will join in and pop along to the others as it is a way to get to know each one of us a little more and to see our different styles

We are Linda Lucas from Australia,  Yvonne Van De Grijp from the Netherlands and Christine Emberson and myself from the UK.   I will add the links to their blogs a little later so please leave each of  them a comment to let them know you have been  ... and they will be so pleased if you do.

For my card I have chosen the   Pretty Petals   and used sets A and B

I have cut the flowers from pale pink and white Craft foam and it really is a fun product to play around with and you can use it in many different ways.

The leaves have been handcut from green foam and I have used brads to hold the parts of the flowers together.

I have embossed all the layers to the card with both sides of the Patchwork Embossing Folder

These are the components of my card and the sentiment has been cut from pink foam three times and then layered together

It really is an easy card to make and I think it fits the "Spring" theme beautifully

And now is your chance to visit the other designers and be inspired by their lovely work ...

I hope you enjoy your visit to the others and will pop back regularly to see what we are all doing.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
