Big Thoughts ...

Hi Everybody,

Every so often there is a card that turns out to be one of the favorites and this card is one of those cards.

I really loved this once it was made and the parchment background was the touch that made it special for me

I liked it so much that I made several in different colours and gave them to family for birthdays

And I even did a  Tuesday Tutorial  on how to make it for your self

The soft Lemon goes beautifully with the white and green and the flowers just seemed to fall into place without any help from me.

I added some diamante flourish behind the display 

The finished card was 5x7" and obviously it will not fit easily into an envelope and so a box had to be made for the cards I gave to family

They were all very well received and I was really happy with the result.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  13. Good morning Christina- this card is very lovely. It is understandable why it was enjoyed by the people that you had gave it to. It is so hard sometimes to see all the gorgeous details on camera. Thank you for sharing the card with us.

  14. I agree, Christina..the parchment paper softens the yellow. Of course your finishing touches are what make the card beautiful.
