Back from my hols and straight into my craft room

Hello Everyone, Well I'm back from my hols and to this beautiful weather too!!! How wonderful!

We had two lovely weeks away in Spain, with temperatures reaching upto 50C, which I can tell you, was  exceptional, even in Spain, we put on plenty of suntan lotion and lazed about the pool in the SHADE hee hee!

Anyway enough of my hols. I wanted to make a card as soon as I came home, I really missed colouring and creating.
I have masked Tilda with Cross necklace with the open gate background and have coloured both with copics and Promarkers. I coloured the rose deep red, so that it would stand out from the other flowers in the picture.

All my papers are lovely floral magnolia papers. I cut the card base from Go Kreate Frilly Frame No 10 and added another smaller layer cut from the same frame. Then I cut both Magnolia papers with Spellbinders Grand Decorative Labels No 1 and placed them at angles to each other.

I made one of my hand made pins and a diamontee center for the crotchet flower that I had in my goodies! The Tim Holtz Sentiment is held in place by a Tim Holtz Ideology pin and I had distressed it and scrunched it quite a bit.

Ive used some Kort Godt Rolled Roses and poppies from Live and Love Crafts and the resin bird and centre to the crotchet flower are both from the ribbon girl. (links are in my sidebar)

I hope you like my card, enjoy the lovely weather everyone.
Take Care
