A card to Case

a lovely card to Case made by Therese.
Well I started inspired by the pastel colours.
My whole idea just flew out of the window and the card took over again
and I ended up with 2 cards instead of one.
Forgive the photos the sun was streaming in the window
{ sorry about that for all of you enjoying winter }
and it reflected onto the cards.

I started by sponging some gloss card with Worn Lipstick and
Squeezed Lemonade and putting my cut out flowers over the top.
They were not at all happy with that and wanted to be cut out of the sponged card
 So as usual I gave in and then they made me transfer all those little pieces
back into the spaces on the white card cut out.
Oh they were so fiddly and I kept loosing the really tiny pieces. 

Then of course the left over flowers insisted I do something with them too.
I bought some really pretty lace at the Dollar shop that they took a fancy to.
I stuck this down with very narrow D/S tape and was that difficult to 
get the backing paper off of that.

So I am left with 2 cards, terrible photos and  am going to have the 
cheek to enter one in the Flower Challenge.

Lovely to see you thanks for dropping by.

5 of something

left my run too late to join in with the Merry Monday challenge
of using 5 of something.
Although I am not very happy with my card I took too much time
agonised as to whether or not I was game to put it up at all. 

I should not have used all those snowflakes which by the way are silver not gold.
Ah well there is someone somewhere who will like it.  I HOPE!!!.
The snowman is by way of comic relief.
The trees are Heartfelt Creations lent to me by my good friend Elizabeth.

Lovely to see you thanks for dropping in.
