Pink and Blue Forget-me-Not

Hello Everyone

I hope you are well and having a good weekend. For me, I will be spending time with my lovely daughters as my son and hubby are out playing cricket both today and tomorrow. The forecast is quite good too which is a bonus!

 Yesterday I decided to have a little break from making Design Team cards because I wanted to make a card to send to a special person who is going through a difficult time at the moment.
This gave me a good reason to colour another gorgeous image from Janey’s Digi Designs as you probably know by now how much I love making floral cards.

I chose the delicate Forget-Me-Not which seemed quite appropriate for the occasion. I hadn't realised that these tiny flowers also grow in shades of pink until I saw a photo of them on Janey's Digi designs blog. So, I decided on a pretty pink and blue colour scheme for a bit of a change.



Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Janey's Digi Designs Forget me Not coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Papers - Pink Petticoat Daisy Bouquet and Hydrangeas
Sentiment Stamp - Craftwork Cards
Butterfly punch (no makers name on it)
Organza ribbon from stash


If like floral cards then please take a look on Janey's Digi designs blog. You will see loads of inspiration on there from the Design Team and also some really wonderful creations made by customers using Jane's fabulous images.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Papertake Weekly - FAB sketch
CraftyCatz  Say it with flowers
Creative Moments - Flowers
I love Promarkers - Pink and Blue
Simon Says Challenge - Anything Goes
Digi Haven - Flowers

Thank you for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I hope you all have a good weekend
bye for now
hugs
