Hi, welcome to my happy place....

I started with a white DL base card, added a patterned pink paper to it then another pale pink, paper to that.  All the edges were distressed on the top paper

The sentiment was stamped at the bottom right then the chipboard garden scene was adhered to the card

I made 2 flowers from pure white vellum, added 'worn lipstick' to the centres and across the petals then gave the petals a little shape.  These were adhered together with a pearl brad

I added a piece of the darker patterned paper to the little chipboard bird, went around the edge with a black pen and adhered it to the card

The largest flower was then adhered below the bird

I used a few strands of the 'clear gems on a wire' plus the tiny pink heart and the two tiny pink round gems completed the card front

I stamped the inside of the card, and the envelope, with the same Distress Oxide ink pad, but have yet to add a verse

On the envelope back I embossed the flap as well as stamping 'hello' using the same coloured ink pad

  1. Oh so pretty June, well done winner, xxx

  2. Well done Jane. Lovely card June. Thank you. At least it looks as if I can comment here. Several blogs I cannot comment on today. it says Comment As: andthen a blank space and says no options and won’t let me put an option in.

    1. Thank you Littlelamb

      I've had the same problem when commenting as a DT, I now access these blogs via Chrome and there's not been a problem since.... fingers crossed

      I hope you get it sorted as it's so frustrating when you've added your comment then can't publish :)

  3. Thank you, June for another great card. I love how you finish your cards with pretty inserts.

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
