61 cards for Japan Redcross so far...

Hello bloggers,

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods...

Here is a card I finished today...
I have used pearly white cardstock.
The designer paper is hand block printed from India.

The little bit of crushed gold paper is handmade and from India as well.

The sentiment is from a Sizzix embossing folder.

Some of the flowers have been punched and I have stuck sequins on them.

The metallic daisies are actually confetti from Paper Chase. I just shaped each daisy with the end of a satay stick.

This card looks far prettier in real life... that is sadly often the case with me. 

Anyway I do hope you like it.



Happy crafting and many thanks for all the lovely comments you all leave me. It is such a source of joy and inspiration...

Hugs,

Monica

The best part about the card is the metallic daisies.. We get leather daisies in India in gold and silver colour which I have used extensively on envelopes...All the way from India you got your stuff.. Not bad Monica...:-)
