Summertime with Claritystamps and Sweet lilac flowers




The first thing I look for when making a card is the colour.  I had some lovely lemon and lilac paper flowers from Sweet lilac and matching brads so putting them to one side I went to look for a stamp to bring out the colours I wanted to use I had a play with both Topaz and Madeline both Claritystamps and favourite stamps of mine,  then I happened upon Beatrice.....Perfect the way she holds her wrap on her hand as she leans across to open the gate into a secret garden.  I cut the oval with Spellbinders  and used second generation Espresso Adirondack to stamp out the image, coloured her in in lemon and lilac added the brads to the flowers and glued them to the outer of the frame.  I found a strip of lilac ribbon matted and layered cream and lilac card and added the final three flowers to the ribbon. Stamped a simple Thank you (Clarity again!)
And there we have it job done xxxx Hope you enjoy looking.
