Morning! I made a card just for fun today, my mojo felt like it disappeared yesterday so I usually find making a card just for myself helps find it again. Some pretty papers and flowers don't hurt either!

I don't usually use stickers, I never really know what to do with them but I just love these ones from the Echo Park Victoria Gardens Collection. I stuck it onto some card and cut out the frame and added to my card with foam pads.

The pretty flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearl trinket pin I made. The fab roses print paper is from the Victoria Gardens Collection (isn't it gorgeous!).

I added some sweet lace also from Wild Orchid Crafts and tied some green and white baker's twine around it, topped with a pink button.

Ok, feeling like I'm back on track now, ready to tackle all those other cards that I have to make!! Quite a few this week!! Thanks for dropping by and as always thanks for the comments, they really do keep me going when I'm having a bit of a wobble!! : )


Paper/Card: Echo Park Victoria Gardens papers and stickers, white card, green papers from stash.
Other: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, trinket pin, lace, button, baker's twine and seam binding from The Ribbon Reel.

    I´m a bit sick of card-making at the moment... perhaps making anything else just for fun will help me, too?!
    Take care!
