Easter


Over at Cardmadfairy's Digi Days the theme of the new challenge is Easter so I have made a card using my digi stamped Dotty Blooms available here. I printed out two A4 pages of the flower shapes and cut them out, then I inked the edge of each one before layering them in threes and securing with mini brads.
I cut a cross shape from a piece of scrap cardstock then arranged the blooms on it. I used patterned paper from DCWV as a backing and finished the card off with a bit of cream seam binding ribbon and a computer generated sentiment.

Entering my card for the following challenges:
Craft Us Crazy - Easter/ Spring
Delightful Challenges - Flowers

The Rubber Cafe - Spring flowers

That is very clever Jenni, I like it so much I may need to pinch it for some cards to send to people who don't do cute easter images.
