Hi there!
Here is the first card made from my new Downton Abbey CD-ROM:

Crafters Companion have got this CD in their clearance sale HERE.
I also used the feather die in the same range, Glossy Accents, SU ribbon and wooden 'celebration' (covered in Glossy Accents and glitter). Flower and black feather from stash.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Hi there!
Have you seen the new crafty craze - Foamiran flowers?
Well I saw THIS CARD made by the super talented Bev Rochester and I was hooked!
I knew that I had to CASE the card for my mums birthday as it is just her all over!
So thank you Bev for the inspiration and my new found love:

Sorry for the photo overload but I am extremely pleased with the end result. It took along time to make but worth it I think.
Bev has some amazing video tutorials on her blog of how to make the flowers.
I think that I will invest in some oil pastels to colour my flowers as I used SU ink pads but had pink hands for days!

I used:
Happy Birthday die  Spellbinders (layered up several times for dimension)
Mum die from Clearly Besotted (also layered)
Frame from EBay
Bottle originally filled with glitter emptied out and filled with seed beads
I thought that the ribbon was from The Ribbon Girl but I can't find it at the store.
my mini sewing machine!

As you like it challenge 'peals or gems and why'  mine would have to be pearls as they are more subtle and elegant.

I am happy to say that my mum loved the card!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend.
