Floral Fantasia

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

What is up with the weather at the moment.  It was foggy this morning but now we have sunshine and it is quite warm, not what you expect in January!  I am not complaining I actually managed to get to the car wash and get my car washed then came home and got it hoovered and cleaned inside too!  Domestic duties are done too, but hubby has helped he is a star.

A couple of my friends have asked me how I am getting on with my new computer and Window's 8.  I have actually surprised myself and getting on quite well with it.  Just trying to get my photographs to actually post on my blog is being a bit of a pain and had to resort to putting my photos on my blog with my laptop!  I will sort it out but just haven't got the time at the moment.

Today's card I have used Floral Fantasia decoupage kit from Kraftyhands.  They do have a CD which I thought I had but came home to find it not in my collection!  I will have to get my hands on this when I go back to Leeds on Tuesday.


The base card is 8 x 8 gold pearlescent card
The first layer is cream card which I have added to the base card at an angle.
The green paper is from the kit as is the base of the decoupage.
I have decoupaged the tulips using Pinflair.
The ribbon has been attached before topper was layered onto base card.
Using the sentiment stamp from Little Claire's I have stamped onto scrap piece left over from the green paper.
To finish off I have added buttons and a bow along with a punched out circle of the tulips.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs

Delicious card Linda, such fabulous images to work with, and so cheerful for this time off year, so glad you are getting on okay with Windows 8, I am having to put a mouse into my laptop, to do links and things, so might have to give up and buy a new one, this one is just over a year old, but after Kenny spilt juice over it last year everything has gone wrong with it, LOL xxx
