I decided I wanted to make something just for fun and a challenge or two if possible!! I had seen the challenge at Belles & Whistles which was 'Shaping Up For May Flowers' (make a shaped card not square & add flowers) which I really liked the idea of and so that was my starting block for making this.
I used my Cricut Design Studio to weld together the frame and the banner to make the back shadow piece, then cut another frame and banner plus another shadow banner to add to the front. I also added a flap on the back with the section to write a message on.
I also made all the flowers myself using one of Penny Duncan's Rose files and following her video on how to make them. I am really pleased with the result for a first time try. I started out with plain white thickish paper which I inked in two shades of purple and the leaves with a green.
I used this image in particular as it is my mum's favourite of my many stamps and as it is her birthday in a couple of weeks thought I would give it to her if it turned out any good lol. You can just see in the top photo I have written the word 'Sister's' across the banner but I will stamp this once I have found my only set of small lettered stamps!!
