General card

Hello, dear bloggers,

Welcome to my latest follower - Creative's Wardah! Thank you for following my blog.

Here is a card I made this morning, yes, this morning - it felt like pure luxury!!! So good to be able to craft and  post it instantly on the blog!

I have to give credit to Lynn for the inspiration for this card - thanks!


Base cardstock - pale green
White cardstock with a stripey texture which has been embossed on the borders with CB using my new embossing folder
Cycle stamp - Hero Arts (my new acquisition as well!)
Teddy bear - thanks to Sandra!
Flowers - homemade by me
Leaves - punched with leaf punch
Ribbon -  from stash
Heart and pearls on spokes of the wheels - courtesy Lynn!
Sentiment - handwritten and distressed on the borders

I made this card for a new blog buddy who's daughter is not well. But I realized that the sentiment is not really apt, so I guess I will make another one.

 I am quite happy with this card...hope you like it as well. Would love to hear what you think of it.

What an adorable card! That teddy is so cute riding with no hands on the wheel!!

The embossing and handmade flowers are wonderful!!!

Sorry the sentiment didn't work for you. Maybe you can just cut another oval and glue it over the one you have on the card?

Just an idea!
