Floral Birthday

We've had the most glorious sunny afternoon here, definitely at the scorchio mark!  I had a sit down in our garden earlier, something I rarely do (!) and it was great to see all the birds, bugs and bees at work.

Anyway, must press on, the lovely Poldark is on telly shortly ;)
This card is for my sister-in-law - she's a card maker too so I always feel a bit of pressure making hers!  I've watercoloured my Prima flowers and then went over the blooms with my clear glitter pen.  The little white snippet is a Paper Smooches die and is embossed with an old Cuttlebug swiss dots folder.

Here's a wee quickie just for the fun of it.  I've cased Patti's card from her blog Stationery Styles here.  Mine's not a great pic, I can only blame the blazing sunshine outside!  I've chalked a load of circles in varying blues, purples and pinks, but they're not showing up very well here.
My bunny is from Lili of the Valley - coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to the balloon and plate.
Thanks for the inspiration Patti! 


  1. This is a gorgeous card Lynne! I love the flower image and you’ve coloured it so beautifully. The little embossed snippet and twine is a beautiful finishing touch! ;-)
    Thanks for joining us at MAWTT for our Embossing Challenge and Good luck in the draw!

  2. Both cards are awesome, but your sister-in-law card is particularly so. I think she will love it. I hope to give my watercolor pencils a try sometime this week. I'll never color as well as you, but I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

  3. Your floral card is stunning, lovely to see you playing along with us at the Flower Challenge. Your bunny card is so sweet, I can see your delicate circle background beautifully x

  4. What a gorgeous card Lynne! Love those flowers and the pretty pink paper you used, And a cever touch with the embossed little embellishments and twine - just adds that something extra.

    And of course I adore the LOTV card too :)
