Spring flowers


Yesterday's craft fair was really good and I met some lovely people and sold very well, including this card. I tried a new gift idea which I can't share with you yet as it was a DT make. I only made two and sold them both so need to make some more of those.

It is ages since I made one of these fold back cards and I really like it so expect to see a few more. Like easel cards though they are not the easiest of cards to photograph. I kept the embellishments to a minimum as it just didn't need any more.


Here's the detail of the lovely image.
