Chilling


I have not made many cards lately, just haven't had the get up and go!   Yesterday I went and sat in my craft room and willed myself to make a card.  This is the result.   I used an image from the Gruffies cd from Joanna Sheen which I decoupaged.  I then went a bit mad adding clouds and sunflowers!  The grass has come out rather dark in the photo but the colour is really quite close to the grass on the image.

I am entering the following challenges:

"Lazy Days" at Gruffies and Guests
"Spots and Dots" at Incy Wincy Designs
"Summertime" at Natalie and Amy
"Die Cuts" at Creative Card Crew
"Anything Goes" at House Mouse
"Grab a bunch of Flowers" at Unstampabelles

  10. I love the way you've made this a scene, with he grass and flowers at the bottom, and the clouds at the top. I like that you didn't restrict yourself to the straight edge at the top of the card, but let the clouds spill over - quite inspiring, so I hope you don't mind me pinning it.
