Daring Cardmakers - May flower

I made a new card yesterday. Still have some ones from when the computer was down to load up later.

This week's DCM theme was a bit tricky. The flowers for May are Lily Of The Valley and Hawthorn.   Just couldn't think what I had that would fit the theme and then all at once I had inspiration and found 2 things at the same time.

I've used Jo Kill's sketch and baby card design from issue 84 of Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine as my inspiration.  The photo was taken in my mum's garden a couple of years ago and the colour scheme of pink and green has come from the little reproduction Victorian scrap I found with a Lily Of The Valley posey on it.  I've used My Minds Eye dotted card with a brown DCWV card base.


The buttons and thread were both freebies.

The Branston Pickle started pre-school for real yesterday so I now have 2 afternoons a week to dedicate to housework crafting.  Although I miss the little terror, I love it when I pick him up and he comes running over shouting "Mummy, mummy, mummy!".

Kate, that is a beautiful photo, and you've made such fab use of it on your card - love the tag and buttons and the little splash of pink really works so well.
I can't believe its time for BP to start pre school - doesn't seem five minutes since we were all waiting for his arrival! Enjoy you afternoons and don't use them for h.wk!
