~Thursday is Lilac day~



Hi All~
Looks like it's going to rain here today, although up to now, it hasn't...It's not like we don't need some, but it has been great, this nice warm weather.

I wanted to do another shaped card today, and chose this Scrapbook paper that was already this shape~all I did was fold in it half and then stuck it to a plain white card and cut round it, for a bit more stability.
I have followed a few challenges for this card. As I have made my own flowers, found a couple which required this element.
List of them below:

I just had to use Tilda again today, she makes me smile...She's so cute, and this image with her hair up in little buns is Sooooo sweet...do you agree?

I cannot remember where I saw the demo for this flower, but it was so easy...
Start off drawing a freehand cirle getting nearer and nearer the centre like a spiral, then cut along the line to the middle with scissors, then starting from the outside roll it up and glue at the end.....Oh hec I made it sound hard and yet it isn't!!

I do not use glitter on cards very often (just stickles), so this was nice for a change, but it's all over my face like I am off to a disco~~ and yet alas I am not!!
My MS punch was out again for the border, I have added pearls, and a ribbon with a sugar brad in the middle. The wee sentiment says "Spring is just Ducky"!!
