Once Upon a Springtime

Hello, welcome to my blog today, also a big welcome to Cheryl, my newest follower. It has been a miserable day here today considering it is Spring! I've had the wood fire going all day as it has been cold, wet and windy. My 3 year old granddaughter is staying overnight and is tucked up in bed and I've been able to watch The Mentalist and CSI. I made this card today for a challenge and now I can't remember which one it was so LOL, I looked around for another one and found the one at Craft Your Days Away Challenge #28 which is "Make your own flowers"
I've used a maroon cardstock for the basecard and added some DSP from stash. The stamp I used is from Hampton Art - graphic 45 and is called "Once Upon a Springtime" I inked it in SU Close to Cocoa and coloured with Marvy Markers. I used a pink nestie to stamp it on. I added a circle charm with two little birds perched in the middle and I attached this with red ribbon. The flowers were made by cutting squares and then rounding off the edges roughly and then cutting into a spiral and rolling. The red ones are card and the white one is from white DSP with pastel feathers. In fact it is a scrap from yesterdays card. I used a die to cut the leaves from green card. Hope this fits the criteria for the swap.
I actually took a photo of this one and uploaded to the computer, but it has taken me ages to try and get it where I wanted it and LOL I don't know how I did it so next time will have to fiddle around again.
Enjoy the rest of your day/evening,
Take care,
