gerberas gone green

I used half a die cut background and cut a frame to fit it. I added some tint bronze coloured gems to the joints and then mounted the frame with trellis onto a dark green background.

I used a white base card and mounted the trellis panel to the right hand side of the card. I used memory box gerbra flower die cut  in water colour paper, which I coloured with random splodges of different green water coloured paints. The water colours add a soft and subtle pattern.

I added the flower to the card partially overlaying the flower on the trellis panel.
I finished the card with one of my preprepared itty bitty bees which adds a little splash of golden yellow and  more sparkle.
Although my card doesn't have the bright colours that are often associated with summer I still feel my card has an air of summer especially with my little bee.

I again haven't added a sentiment as I think this card could be used for a variety of occasions and will add an appropriate sentiment when I use the card.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-


crafty boots challenge - butterflies and bees


the paper shelter-flower power

A bit more time to craft -anything goes
