Build A Blossom

Jak Heath over on Crafters Kitchen has made some beautiful sheets called 'Build A Blossom', which you can download for free from her site. Last night I had a play with one of the sheets.



I made up the blue blossoms using Jak's sheets. Once cut out I lightly creased the petals to give a little lift and dimension then held the layers together with pearl brads. I threaded up some beads in 2 lengths and attached them to hang from the large blossom. The dp used is K & Co. The lace is attached to a piece of green card which matches the base colour, then attached it to the lower half of card. The sentiment was done on the PC, I then cut three different sized scallop circles, using nesties, from the sentiment, dp and one of the PM Venetian Skies papers, layered them together then cut out a fan shape adding a green flat-backed pearl to the fan base.

It's one of those cards I'm not sure about again, but I think it's growing on me. I loved working with Jak's blossoms though.

Well it's a foggy and icy start here this morning, and boy did we have some hefty hail and snow storms yesterday, short and sharp thankfully. It had started off a nice day so got out in the garden for a bit of tidying up, wish I hadn't started and my arms are paying the price this morning, would love to get out there again today to continue the job half done, but not looking likely at the moment can hardly lift my arms..lol.

Well I hope you all have a great day whatever your plans xxx
