Spring Blossom with a Sentiment

I will keep it brief this time as I am full of cold and planning to go back to bed! Our new challenge at
  The Cardmadfairy is to Add a Sentiment. I decided to add it to the image which you can find here before I printed it out.
We have been studying Japan this week at school and the children have painted blossom trees for their Mothers day cards so I thought I would continue the theme.
The larger flowers are another idea I picked up at Make It Farnborough. They are made from lots of layers of  crepe paper which I die cut and secured with a brad before scrunching up the layers and adding a little distress ink to add definition.
Entering the following:


  1. Such a pretty card Gillian...I especially love the flowers... they are gorgeous.I made some ages ago but hadn't thought about using distress ink on the edges.
