Another card for Jean

I`m here at last with a card.

My Dad rang during the week and asked me to make a card for Jean. This is the same lady I made the lilac card for a few posts ago. I decided to go with pink and this was the perfect excuse to use my brand new digi papers from Pink Petticoat. 
They are called vintage roses and remind me of Laura Ashley. This is what I did with them,

The photo isn`t very good I`m afraid. We had glorious sunshine first thing but by the time I had the chance to take a piccy, the sun had disappeared again.
I made a 5" x 5" square card, then cut a panel slightly smaller. I like this way of making cards as it gives a bit of depth and is also easier for wrapping ribbon round.
I used 2 pieces of Pink petticoat DP, one roses and one stripes. Wrapped the ribbon around the join to hide, then mounted the panel onto my card using foam pads.
Then I just went to town with the embellies.
I used some diamonte flourish bling, then added some pink roses from my stash.
Made a huge bow ( ofcourse) and added that to my ribbon.
I made the sentiment on the PC and cut it out with a nestie labels 4 die and voila!!!

Phew! I`d forgotten just how hectic life is when you are working. I`m doing afternoons next week so that should be easier and I am determined to keep on top of things so I can have more of my weekend free ( yeah right!) Lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
