For my Gran

My poor Gran is in the hospital at the moment so I made her this card last night. I used 'Bloomin' with Beauty' from the Spring mini that's about to finish at the end of the month. I watercoloured the flowers with inks from the lids, using Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Mellow Moss & Bashful Blue, then cut it out and popped it up with Dimensionals. The base is Very Vanilla and the other CS is Bashful Blue and Pale Plum. The spiral clips are Antique Brass and tied with some Bashful Blue grosgrain....a la Jessie Rone. There's also some gorgeous Purple rhinestone brads in the corners of the Plum last 4 to be exact...see how much I love my Gran :)

ETA: Almost forgot to add that this card was based on Beate's WSC66. I had to flip the sketch to get the image in and then I didn't have room at the bottom to add a it had to go without!

OK, that's it for now....things are crazy around here....not helped by the fact that I decided to tidy my desk before the books and papers on it fell on top of me and killed me. So I needed somewhere to put them, which led to me moving stuff around, packing up novels to store in the garage, foolishly carrying boxes of books around, and inevitably a sore back. BTW, my desk is still not properly tidy!!!!! Anyway, I'd better go attempt some real work.

Have a great Wednesday,
