MAWTT April 2016 Challenge. . . . . . . . . . .


Good morning everyone and welcome to my creation for the DT for MAWTT.

This month's challenge has been chosen by Gail and is to use Spring Flowers.

Now, that immediately led me back to daffodils, I'm afraid and as they are beginning to look past their best in my garden, I thought I'd make the most of using them on my cards. Hope you don't mind another daffodil shot.

On the above picture, the background paper looks more green than yellow but I photographed it about 10 times standing up as this was as good as it got. The other couple of photos are more representative of the true colour of John Lockwood's gorgeous paper.


Ingredients
Cream Card
Lemon yellow card from John Lockwood's Spring Shades 8x8 pad
Embossalicious Floral Vine A4 embossing folder
SB Lonely Hearts die (cut twice and joined in a cross in the centre)
SB Captivating Squares
HC Sunkissed Fleur (Daffodils)
Presscut Squares
Sentiment from John Lockwoods Cherry Blossom stamp set
Pistachio Memento Dew Drop ink
Pearlage


This snap shows how I double padded the centre of the crossed Lonely Heart die cuts to raise the focal point. The ends of these were then glued flat where they emerged from under the frame (hope that makes sense lol???)

Please pop over to MAWTT to see what the other gals have created and hope you can enter the challenge................go on, get those daffs and tulips out .

Will probably see you all the other side of the weekend noe, so have a good one.

TTFN

  24. Hi Ang,
    what a very superb card.
    I just love this superb creation.
    You are so very clever, and talented.
    As you know being born in Wales Daffs are my very fave flower, and you have done them proud with this.
    Another thing I like about Daffs is how they wave to you in the breeze.
    Have a very super weekend, only hope your not working.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
