Dreamees meets Tattered Lace POTD

Good evening ,

I hope you are all well.

We have had a very busy weekend as it was Hayleys birthday on Saturday she had a nice day although it was mostly working lol. We went out for a nice meal on Sunday too, which was very nice and I didn't have to cook then so even better.

Right getting on with my post today, it is a card which I have made for the Tattered Lace POTD on Ideal World launching at 9 pm on Tuesday 15th April, be sure to tune in these dies are lovely and so nice to work with. As alot of you know I just adore making flowers so this is right up my street.

I first of all used an 8 x 8 white card blank as I had the idea of using the Venetian  Fern as  like a wreath effect, which I cut out using papers from Dreamees cds , I then cut lots of the flowers out of the same papers and two circle and scallop spell binders dies for the sentiment to be stamped onto.
I then arranged the four ferns along each side of the card to make the square/circle shape wreath. I inked the flower edges with gathered twigs distress ink pad to give a bit of dimension, layered two large and two small flowers on top of each other to make a gorgeous daisy shape, I then added a pearl in the centre of each one and arranged these at equal spaces around the centre, then I stamped the Dreamees sentiment stamp in the centre of the plain circle die, attached this to the scallop one which again I added some gathered twigs distress ink to.

All in all I think this card would make anyone smile just like the sentiment says.

Thank you so much for looking and I would appreciate it if you could leave a comment.
