Mygrafico Monday Feature~ Summer Flowers.


Summer is full on in the Northern Hemisphere and summer flowers are in full bloom.  Our DT this week got to use this fabulous set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.

 I decided to make a Congratulations card


I used a new Cuttlebug folder to make the background panel.  I printed the beautiful flowers out and cut with Spellbinders floral oval die.  I used a Sakura gel pen to colour the petals and a Copic for the leaves.    Sentiment stamp from Hero Arts stamped onto a Spellbinders tag.  Finished with a single pearl in the centre of the flower.
I am entering this into Lawnscaping's #37 challenge to use Dimension. 

Pop over to the blog to see what the others created.   Some beautiful creations.
And don't forget our Summer Bright challenge is still on here

Not great news on the job front... I didn't get the job I was after... so plodding on in my current position... just have to keep trying!  At least I have a job, which is more than some.  One of the word processors at work is being made redundant in a few weeks and is still not able to find a new position.

Thanks for visiting today... enjoy your week.

A very elegant card Dawn. I love the embossed background and the spellbinders oval die and tag you have used. Very effective with all the white and just a little colouring.

Sorry to hear that you missed out on the job you were hoping for. Keep trying.

Great embossing pattern Dawn, and it sits so well with the frame, love the focal image of the flower; White on White; is airy bright and glistening. A beautiful card.
