Floral Birthday Wishes

My first DT sample for Imagine That! Digis by Kris for this month is a lovely bouquet. I chose to put in as many colours as I could to compensate for the grey, miserable weather we have been having lately. Storm Imogen is currently howling around the house and there were local floods over the weekend. Once again large areas of the Somerset Levels are under water, however it is not nearly as bad as two years ago which is something to be thankful for. Some of the newly installed flood defenses have been tested and have held, needless to say there are a lot of relieved engineers and residents!

Materials used:
Imagine That! Digis by Kris set – Bouquet For . . .
Copic X-Press It card
yellow card stock
grey card stock
white A5 card blank
Copic pens

I have altered the little label on the bouquet by changing the greeting on it. I used two images and fussy cut the central group of flowers to  decoupage over the top. I shaped them first and then used glue gel to attach them.

Imagine That! Digis by Kris started a brand new monthly challenge on Saturday, the Creative Playground Challenge. The theme for the first one is ‘Show us your heart’. So why not take a look and have a go yourself. You can get all the details by clicking on the banner on the side of the page, that should take you straight there if I have got the link correct!

Thank you visiting. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Gorgeous coloring of this bouquet Pippa! 🙂 The colors really pop and the yellow compliments the grey. Oooofffff! Flooding! So sorry to hear that. Today was kinda miserable here with heavy fog, had to have my wipers going through town just to clear the fog off the windshield. At least it hasn’t been raining much (knock on wood). Inside days make great CRAFTING days!! 🙂 silver lining there. Your card made me SMILE! Thanks so much xxKris
