Challenge Card

Hello everyone
Hope you've all had a good day, Friday's are great as they are nearly the weekend, 
specially this being BH eh!
i made the card for a new challenge, for me
Their challenge this week is that the sentiment is the focal point and there are flowers
hopefully mine fits the bill

 I used kraft for my base card. The first thing I did was to make the scribbled border. I punched the diamond shape from a scrap piece of card and then following one of the lines on the kraft i scribbled my way along! If you don't have lines on the card a feint pencil line works just as well. I just sued a black biro for this, as I found a felt type made the colouring a bit solid for what I wanted.

The flower daisies, green leaves and embossing folder are all Stampin Up
you can contact me here to purchase 

Thanks for stopping by, thanks for all your kind comments
it means a lot

See you tomorrow for our new challenge over on Less is More
