Wishing you...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

I hope you are well.

The heavens sure opened yesterday and the gardens have had a good watering with all the rain.
Our lawn is scorched with it being so hot, and it looks like we are in for another heat wave too according to the weather man!  We will see!

As you know I love creating backgrounds using shaving foam and used one of the pieces as a mat for this card.


Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white curved side base card.
2. Matted and layered shaving foam background, before adhering to card added doily to the edge.
3. Matted and layered white oval pearlescent card and the topper.
4. Added 3 white pearls to the left corner.
5. To finish off added the sentiment.
