Last photo...........promise!!!

Happy Friday everyone.  Well, I can't believe that this time last week I was sitting in a traffic jam trying to get to Daventry for the Oyster Stamp Retreat.  This week's flown by.  I've finished off our last project that we did with the divine Miss Martine of Ab Fab Designs.  It was nearly our last project on Sunday and one and a half hours was no way enough time for 10 of us to finish this gorgeous card.

I posted a photo of Martine's card the other day, but here is my version.


Recipe:  Heartfelt Creations Sunkissed Fleur stamps and dies, Creative Expressions Heart Lattice embossing folder, Wink of Stella brush pens, Liquid Pearls, Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 and Twisted Metal Tags & Accents, Bling on a Roll (from Oyster Stamps)QuietFire Designs Sentiment & Frame stamp, We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, vellum, embossing powder, bone folder.

I'll own up now..........I added the flower inside by the sentiment as I got a small ink mark; then I was too quick to close the envelope and some Liquid Pearls got on the inside flap.........hence the three flowers inside!!!  See, happy accidents; serendipity at work yet again - hehe!

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and special birthday wishes go out to my eldest nephew Dominic; have a brilliant time.

  3. gorgeous card Karen, love the envelope inside, your colour flowers are beautiful

  4. It really is a stunning work of art, Karendipity! You did an excellent job of it! I look forward to seeing your new creations with your new goodies!

    Thank you for your sweet wishes! I'm afraid fetching and carrying for me will be nothing new to the Mister this weekend, as I've got him quite well trained at treating me like I'm the bleeping queen! Just for you, though, I'll think of some new treat I must have to take my mind off my sore chesticle! (I stole that from Lunch Lady Jan!)

    Have a fab weekend sorting and recovering and playing! Hugs! xxoo Dippy

  5. This is beautiful with the intricate die cuts and those lovely flowers. Had to smile at your reasons for the additional flowers!! I can certainly identify with that.

  6. WOW!Beautiful card!!!Love the flowers,Awesome design,Have a Blessed day!!!

  7. Wow ... your card is AMAZING!! Love all the layered white die-cuts - so pretty and elegant. And those vellum blooms are GORGEOUS! Really a beautiful card that will be a keepsake for someone special!

    Good way of covering up those boo-boo's on the inside. I've been doing that A LOT lately. Usually when I'm so excited about a card and rush to finish the inside :) Loll xx

  8. you had better send me your address then so I know where to send it lol
    Hugs Kate xx

  9. Surprising where 1.5 hrs goes! Glad the happy accidents worked out ok - love the flowers on this card.

  10. Don't happy accidents show off what a true crafter you are?
    Love your card Karen, love the colours and the inside of the envelope is divine.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  11. awwwwwwwwwwww thank you, and as for a video on flower arranging will see what I can do, don't think I could do a video the same way I normally do, might have to enlist the hubby as I get a great big pile of flowers out all in the colours I am using and then fill up the glue tube and just hit is lol, will see if he will play too and see what happens
    hope you are well and always love your comments
    take care sweetie
    Kate xx
