Smile into Spring

This is a card that I made for this months challenge for Fred, She Said. Details below!!!!

I used a pre-coloured floral download and used Splitcoast featured stamper 164 for inspiration.

The sentiment was computer generated, pearls for the centers and some stickles around the edges of the flowers.
All details for challenge available here:

Blessed Easter

Well, here is another card that I have made with a 'Fred She Said' digital download. I really love the look of the outline shape, it is from the set 'Paper pricking patterns frame', it makes for a simple card to put together. The rose is from the 'Corner Rose' and the sentiment is from 'Easter lilies with sentiments'. I used a little stickles around the edges of the rose for some glimmer.

Abundant Blessings

I made up a couple more cards that could be used for a few different occations. Some of the images used are new releases from Fred She Said. The shape and outline are from a new paper pricking pattern and the rose is from a pre-coloured digital download called 'Corner Rose' and the yellow flower is from a set called 'Fall Flowers'. The sentiment is from 'Verve' and the green flourish is from 'There She Goes'.

I cut the shape by hand and with the yellow card just added its own dots around the edge.

Teacup Pansies

These are another simple card that I made from a pre-coloured digital download from "Fred, She Said". I need to get some Mother's Day cards to a hospital gift shop and I thought these would work well.

The Set I used for this is called 'Blue Pansies set' and 'Purple Pansies set'. The speckled paper at the bottom of the cards also comes with the download. I cuttlebugged the background paper, used nesties for the focal image and then used my favorite MS border punch and finished them off with some white ribbon.

Gift set

I thought that this set of flower images from 'Fred She Said' would make such a cute little gift set for someone...not sure who will get it yet!

I just made a very simple box with 2 sheets of 8 1/2 x 10 cardstock and scoring it to fit the A2 size card. Added a extra image and some matching ribbon to the front of the box to complete the look.
