  18. Great looking turned out awesome...
    I will be for sure watching you again on Create Craft did a terrific job last time...good luck
    Take Care and don't overdo...

  19. Beautiful card! The coloring on your flower is stunning. You're a true artist!

  20. Hi Christina, Wow...the SN colours really make the flowers jump right out of the card don't they. It's just stunning! Thanks for sharing with us...I'm off to try the background technique :). x

  21. Wow! STUNNING! Would love to know where to get the stamp Christina! Love this card ... every detail is just great, and LOVE the colour! Can't wait to see you on C & C again, and I really do wish I lived nearer for your workshops! I wish you good luck with all the above dates!
    Can I ask, will you be making a video on the create a flower daisy? I am in the process of making one with my new dies, but it seems so laborious ... and I am not entirely sure how many times to cut each of the pieces ..... I do know the the petals need to be done 10 times.... but I am not sure about the rest, or even which of the pieces is for setting your petals on, or what some of the other pieces are for! So I am cutting them ALL out 10 times ... apart from the leaves that is! So if you ARE going to make a video, I will definitely be watching it and saving for future reference!
    Thanks for all that you do, and share with us Christina, I for one, very much appreciate it!

  23. Morning Christina ...lovely card, but I'm wondering why you didn't tell us how you made it...besides the colouring I mean.
    P. S.- It's SNOWING here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

  26. Lovely card Christina! Just one thing I wasn't keen on-the paper behind the sentiment,I would have kept the white background myself. All the best for your TV show,can't watch it here I'm afraid! Ann.x
