Beautiful Bluebells

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope you all had a good Easter weekend. My children have all returned to school and college this morning, I am already missing them, the house is just too quiet.

Anyway, recently I was lucky to see a field full of stunning Bluebells, so lovely it almost took my breath away. Inspired by this I wanted to make a card featuring these beautiful flowers but with just one problem, I don't own any Bluebell stamps! Then I remembered that the gorgeous Fresh Flowers stamp set I recent bought from Clearly Besotted Stamps includes a Lily of the Valley image which looks fairly similar - hopefully ?!

As you can see, I have gone for a CAS design this time not wanting to distract from the image, using the fabulous sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.




Items Used:
Stamp - Clearly Besotted Fresh Flowers coloured with Promarkers and white gel pen
Sentiment - Clearly Besotted It's your Birthday (masked off the 'Happy')
Die-Namics Pierced Rectangle Stax
Doodlebug Sprinkles Lily White


Less Is More -  Makes Me smile - Bluebells are so beautiful, I love the colour, they make me think of Springtime which is my favourite season and I always smile when I see them!  However, I am not sure if there is enough 'white' space on my card so please delete if necessary!
Sketch Saturday  - Fabulous Sketch
Clearly Besotted - Spring!
MAWTT - Include the word Happy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my card today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
bye for now
hugs

Elsie with Roses - Dies to Die for DT card

Good Morning my lovely crafty friends.
I hope all is well with you and that you are having a good Easter weekend. My Son is playing in his first cricket match of the season so we are hoping the weather stays fine.

Today is my day to share my card made with some gorgeous goodies from Dies to Die for.

I have had fun making an easel card to feature a totally adorable Wild Rose Studio stamp, this is Elsie with Flowers. The gorgeous papers are from Bo Bunny, I love the colours of these. The sentiment is from Die-Namics Polka Dot Greeting, this fabulous set comes with a choice of greeting and backgrounds and is so useful. The pretty peach scalloped layer had been cut with a Tonic Studio Nesting Die
I have used a Marianne Design Die for the rolled roses and a La-La Land Die for the stitched border.



To show the sentiment


Items Used:
Stamp - Wild Rose Studio Elsie with Roses coloured with Promarkers

My adorable image is a digi stamp from the fabulous Tiddly Inks
I seem to have gone for a monochrome look, it wasn't intentional but I wanted to use some fab Doodlebug papers that I have had in my stash for a while and a green landscape just would have looked wrong!
