Hi, thanks for stopping by... 
I love the scene this pretty paper portrays and it is the paper that makes this card!

I used an 8" square white card base and from one of my 12" paper pads I chose the above paper, trimmed it so I could mat it to a thin black mat and glued it to the card base.  I put it to one side and kept going back to it thinking should I add one flower are more..... rightly or wrongly you can see the decision I came too!
I used two sets of dies, both by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions and added a pinkish red gem to the string flowers and a pearl gem to the poppy flowers.  I die cut the spring foliage in white card and used Diamond Snow to give them a touch of sparkle

I used my Wink Of Stella pen to add a touch of sparkle to the fence posts and stamped 'Memories' with Distress Ink 'Black Soot'

  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I read all your comments and appreciate you leaving me a message and hope my designs have given a little inspiration
