I have to admit, this picture inspiration at Paper Lovin' Gals this week gave me all sorts of grief! It took ages to be able to come up with something. My Mum saved the day by asking me for a birthday card for a lady at her church. I ended up selecting a doily shape to go with the mesh like images above.
I stayed with similar colours using Poppy Parade as my base, Sahara Sand just echoed Ecru, which is the colour of a lot of crocheted doilies in my Mum's collection and then just to lift it all I added the blue satin ribbon from my stash. I coloured the flowers using Copic markers and the white is so stark in the photo but it's actually very close to the Sahara Sand IRL
I rarely decorate the inside of my cards, I suppose I'm moving on to the next project, but my Mum always opens them up when I show her, even though she knows there is nothing inside I like to wait until I know what I want to use the card for and add a message especially for the person and occasion.
You really need to give this one a go! Talk about making you think, thanks Michele. Head on over to the Paper Lovin' Gals blog and get creative.
