Busy day!

A village near us was having their annual show. A friend of Luke's was to be an attendant on the carnival queen's float and asked Luke to accompany him. I was encouraged to dress up and got a prize! I entered four cards and two floral art categories. Got second prize for my card and third for one of the floral displays. A grand total of £8 won today!



Here is the card in more detail...




When I knew I wanted to enter the card section of the show I had thought of doing a pop card. I saw this technique last week and thought I'd try it out. I had bought the Martha Stewart Clasic Butterfly punch and was itching to use it. Only one type of cardstock was used throughout with lots of layering of flowers and leaves.

Ingredients: Punches by Martha Stewart, Punch Bunch, Dove craft and Carl Craft. Fiskars shape cutter for circles. Leaf stamp by Rubber Stamp Tapestry, sentiment stamp by Anna Griffin.

Thanks for your comments, please let me know if you'd be interested in me doing a tutorial on this card.
