Remember When......? For a Dear Friend


Good Morning Everyone

I hope you are all well.

This is the card I made for a very good friend who I have known since I was a child. When I saw that Joanna Sheen's Challenge theme is 'remember when...?'  I knew straight away that I wanted to use this decoupage image as it reminds me so much of when we used to go for walks during the long summer holidays collecting buttercups and daisys. Oh happy days!!
It took me ages to cut out the decoupage but I did find it quite therapeutic! I used purple for the borders, ribbon and flowers are that is my friend's favourite colour.

Anyway here is my card


I find it so hard to take good photos of easel cards.
Here is the top section


Items used:

Decoupage > Faye Whittaker All our Yesterdays
Border Punch > Martha Stewart
Flowers> Memory box fancy blossoms
Butterflies and leaves > Woodware
Sentiment > Personal Impressions
Made with love Charm > Mei flower
Backing paper > freebie from a magazine (many years ago)

Thanks so much for looking, sorry about the blurry photos, that's something I need to work on.
I hope you all have a good day.
Bye for now
I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Remember when....?
Allsorts Challenge - Someone Special
LEJ Designs Challenge Blog - ribbons galore
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes
The Crazy challenge - childhood memories

I am so glad you called by my blog and I was able to see your lovely creations. I have tried to follow you but when I click on follow ....blogger says the website address is wrong ?.
I tried to follow a challenge site earlier today to enter my card into a challenge and the same thing happenned and so I think it must be me.
