Hello everyone. I hope you are all surviving the wretched weather we are having at the moment, having been battered by storm Gertrude it would appear that we are now in the throes of Storm Henry here in the UK. I can hear the hailstones hitting the windows as I type.
It has therefore been a really welcome reminder of springtime looking at some of the entries into our last challenge at Ooh La La Creations 'In The Country'. To see if you made our top three pop over to the Ooh La La Creations challenge blog.
This time our theme is
Love and Romance
I used an image and papers from the 'Say it with Words' CD to make this easel card. If you want a copy of the CD click on the image below to take you to the website, and whilst you are there check out the free downloads section for some lovely images.
I decided to go with a heart shaped front to the card which I cut freehand and covered this with the gorgeous background paper from the 'I really really love you' folder on the CD. I enlarged a section of one of the other background papers to print off the patterned heart and used smaller versions of this same heart for the corners. I had the filigree heart strip in my stash and the net is part of a fruit bag from the supermarket.
I fussy cut the image of the little girl and mounted her on black card before fussy cutting again. The bunting is also on teh CD and I just added the letters to spell the word 'LOVE'
The stopper for the easel is a ticket again from the CD which I added the words to to be revealed as the card opens.
The card folds flat for posting .
