FMS#219





Hi, everyone!!!!


Not much time left to link my card at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the week!!!!!  This is the sketch:
 

I flipped it upside down and made this card:



The chevron paper is from a South African manufacturer - I don't know the name.
Flower die from MFT.
Leaves stamp and die from PTI.  The leaves are stamped with 'Field Day' dye ink from MFT - looks very dark in the photo, IRL it's a lovely green.
Wonky rectangular dies from Spellbinders.
The sentiment was kindly cut for me by the sweet Joyce Mehrberg from Cards-by-the-Sea.  Joyce cut and sent me a lot of words to play with!!!!  I am having so much fun using it and you will see a lot of it on my cards in future!!!  Thanks again, Joyce, I really appreciate it - there's a little something on it's way to you - apologies for being a bit late to send it!!!
Finished my card off with rhinestones.


Thanks for the visit - lovely having you here!!!!

Till next time!!!

You're back! Yay! I have missed seeing your gorgeous cards! Love the wonky shapes you've used here - I've had my eye on those dies for a while but haven't taken the plunge yet - I like how you made them into frames and then offset them. A very pretty card, Petra!
