Flower Wreath Card

They've done it again - another clever idea from Craftwork Cards. These flowers are embossed onto a square of beautiful white card that fits perfectly onto the front of a 6 x 6 card base which seems to be my default size.....

I used some of their die cut flowers, just rolled and shaped them a bit, and added a sentiment label to the center.....I coloured all the flowers and dots quickly with a buttercup promarker before sticking on the flowers...

and used candi dotted here and there, adding a gem to the center of some of them. I like the overall effect, nice and cheerful

 I seem to be turning into one of those people who is constantly talking about the weather, was sunny first thing, gorgeous blue skies, but sweater weather rather than tee shirts. Obviously a couple of people looked out of the window, shouted YIPEE at the sight of the sun, and dressed without just popping their heads out of the window to feel the temperature. So there I was, in my cozy sweater sipping my coffee next to a woman who thought she was in the Caribbean. Strapless floaty maxi dress and flip flops, the sort of thing you would wear as a beach cover up in a smart resort. Not even a cardigan - 'she'll catch her death in that'  was my first thought. My second thought was that I am turning into my mother....

See you tomorrow x

  3. Fabulous card Enfys as always and beautifully presented too enjoy your weekend xx

  4. A fab idea and a gorgeous card! So bright and cheerful. I have been looking at people in the same way as you today. I have on jumper, leggings and boots and I have seen people with shorts on! I know I live in Bournemouth but thats still no excuse - they must be freezing! I have already turned into my Mum! xx

  5. I absolutely adore that card. It's so perfect for any occasion. My neighbors daughter has been sunning herself in a string bikini all week. It's just disgusting....and I'm so jealous!

  6. Beautiful card. Love the colours and the flowers of course. Wendy xx

  7. Too funny!!! We had the same thing this week in Cincinnati Ohio USA! We reached about 75 degrees at the hottest part of the day...probably about 60 degrees to start. There were women in strapless dresses or spaghetti strap dresses strolling around like it was 90 out!! I just wanted to smack them around!! Is that wrong??

  8. Adorable card! Love all the happy colors.
    Our weather has been to gorgeous for words! It was up in the 80s today. I was out at my nephews for a party and it looks like I've gotten my first sunburn of the year and hopefully my last. Not too bad, just a bit of pink.

  9. Very sweet cart Enfys ... so colorful, happy and friendly looking. It would be a fun card for a variety of sentiments.

    As far as the weather is concerned, I find it interestng, particularly since the world wide web brings us so much closer to new friends around the globe. We ALL have weather, yet it is rarely the same. And don't worry about turning into your Mother ... let's just say you've been blessed with enough years to understand that inappropriately dressing for the weather can have a negative impact on our health. (OMG, did my Mother just say that?)


  10. Super card Enfys - really enjoying a catch up this's been too long. Cheers Claire x
