Getting rusty

You'd be forgiven for thinking that I've not done any crafting since Christmas. Because that's not too far from the truth. If you're a visitor to our Craft Stamping Quartet blog then you will see I haven't been totally idle. But I have made little other than the projects you see there. So I was a bit rusty when I needed to make a card for my dear friend Lesley's birthday. This card took a long time to hatch but in the end I was reasonably happy with it. The poppy pods, flourish and sentiment are all from Elusive Images (sadly no more but reborn as Chocolate Baroque). The printed paper is from the Motifica collection by Basic Grey. The filigree piece is by MIC. More on the way. Stay tuned.

Well you might have been 'reasonably happy' with it my lovely friend but I was 'totally delighted' with it. Your attention to detail is second to none and in my opinion the card is absolutely perfect.

Thank you so much Jo. I love my card and it is now safely kept in my box of special artwork from people who mean a lot to me.

Big, big hugs
Lesley Xx

What a beautiful card Jo. I love the colours, and the poppies, of course! The filigree elements are lovely. The corrugated card is very clever, and torn perfectly to look noncholant, but to achieve the desired effect. Fabulous, Judith xx

Hooray, welcome back to blogland! Love the corrugated card and what you have done - excellent recycling!! The filigree detail is great and the colours and elements all work really perfectly.
