Back in the Swing of it!

That's me....back in the swing of it! I am really enjoying being able to get into my cardmaking again, and have a few cards to share with you over the next few days.

Today's card is a THANK YOU card, featuring a pretty teapot of flowers.

I went for bright, happy colours, and although this isn't a colour combo I've used before, I am really pleased with how it turned out.

The image is from THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE, and was a freebie a while back. I added the sentiment on the computer before I printed it out. I coloured it with Promarkers and layered it onto a lacey circle nestie.

The flowers are made using my Nellie Snellen punch n emboss set and secured themwith brads. I added a punched border, some ric-rac, a few gems and a couple of die-cut flourishes to finish.

I will enter my card into the following challenges:
I'll be back soon with more to share.
