Today's card is one that evolved as I went along, sometimes they are the ones that turn out the best! The image is another of my old Elusive Images flower stamps, snowdrop script, and I've coloured with my Copic pens before die cutting with an oval Nestie and adding a touch of sparkle to the edge. Behind the image is a fancy MD die cut layer, LR0116, and then the blue scallop Nestie shape embossed with Swiss dots and sparkled along the edge.
And here's the card, another little square to help use up the pile of envies. Behind the image layers I've embossed a plain white layer with a heart CB folder and matted it in blue, then fiddled about with bits and pieces to create the rest of it. The scallop edge is another MD die, LR0201.
Stampin' For The Weekend would like to see flowers so I will enter my little snowdrop card with them. The snowdrops in my garden are surviving the storms, and even the daffs are well up now. I only grow the short varieties as even in the calmest of winter and spring weather it's always windy this close to the Atlantic Ocean! It will be interesting to see what has survived this winter's atrocious weather .. .. and plant more. I do need to get in hedges or shrubs that will grow big enough for the birds to shelter in. Since my neighbour took down the pines, and another neighbour is threatening to cut down his hedge (bad idea as it's protecting his garden from any NW winds) the poor birds struggle to find anywhere to shelter.
