Hi everybody.  Thank you for taking the time to look in and for all the lovely comments that you leave.  They are so very much appreciated.  My card today is one that I made about a month ago for my stock box but I never got around to posting it on here.  My neighbour has just purchased it for her son's partner so I thought I would show it before I gave it to her.  When she saw it I did not have a box made for it but now it is ready to go.

I used a matt hammered card for a change and layered it with a Marianne cut and emboss folder - my usual ribbon and flowers .  The tiny flowers I made from a small tonic punch which came free with a magazine years ago.


Hope you all have a lovely Easter.

Hi Marie-Louise, what a lovely card ... your 'usual' flowers and ribbons are gorgeous - especially that sumptuous bow. Hope you and yours are well and you're enjoying the same gorgeous weather as we have been getting here. Wishing you a wonderful Easter weekend. Elizabeth xx

Hello Marie-Louise :D Gosh, your card is beautiful and no wonder it didn't stick around for long. That bow is lavish and I love the peeks of pink showing through on the die cut. That is beautiful.
Was wondering what technique you use to make your boxes. I'm having a heck of a time learning that bit. I hate to squeeze these cards into envelopes though. I'm assuming your boxes are mailable?
Hugs to you and great to see your post again.

I love your card Marie-Louise - you really have some good ideas for your creations. The addition of those tiny flowers is brilliant, reminds me of the petals falling of the blossom trees at the moment. Super bow as well.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
