Floribunda

Awake and about early, do some blogging before work.  I managed to get a few cards done over the weekend, which is a real achievement, believe me.  My heads full of ideas for some girlie cards and I've even done a boys football card.  I must've been inspired.  Still I've got the beginnings of a cold so I can imagine I'll not be in the mood to do much more this week.  This card is for Allsorts Bloomin Blossoms and PolkaDoodles, no backing papers.  This was hard as I usually start my card off with the backing paper.  I couldn't decide whether to keep it simple, make a BP or just spit my dummy out and cover the card.  It was option 3 for me this time.

Bold or what?  I wanted the stamp to not be the main feature as I wanted her (Georgia, by Little Claire, to have successfully cultivated the big blooms (from Polka Doodles new CD) and be tending to her newer shoots.  It's an easel card on a Kraft card from Papermnia and I've split the backpiece into 3 to give it more interest.  Check out Polka Doodles, I'll say no more but the papers are marvellous, distressed for you already and work brilliantly on Kraft card, not yet shown on C and C either!!!
Stuck with pink and brown and a touch of bakers twine.
It's a lovely morning so the Monday morning feeling's not so bad.
Catcha later
