A Birthday Posy For You

Good evening

Did everyone have a good weekend and Bank Holiday?  I got to spend some of yesterday crafting and this is what I made.

I've gone for a DL sized card as I think it fits these images perfectly.  The image is Posy Trio by LOTV.  I stamped each of the images onto a circle die cut and coloured them with Copic pens.  Glitter has been added to the centre of the flowers.

Sentiment : Set 26 - Simply Sophisticated

All Tied Up
(we want to see something tied - eg. ribbon, twine)

May Flowers

Good evening

Well it's Friday night which means the weekend is finally here and I'm so pleased - it's been a hectic week at work!!  Never mind only next week to go then I'm on holiday for a week (Yippee).

Anyway enough of my waffling and onto my card.  It's another attempt at a CAS card.  The image is Spring has Sprung by Stampavie and the sentiment is Set 25 - Handwritten Phrases by LOTV.

I've coloured the image with Copic pens.

The background paper is from one of the Nitwit collections (sorry I can't remember which one - some of my papers have got mixed up).  I really need to find some time to sort out my craft papers.

A Martha Stewart PATP punch was used to create the mat that the image is stamped onto and a small pearl rhinestone was added to each of the four corners. 
I would like to enter this card into the Without Words Challenge - Brings Forth May Flowers

Well that's it from me.  Have a good weekend whatever you get up to.
