F&F Challenge #161 Pink and Green

Hello there!! well anther Friday so that means a new Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge and it is being hosted by the super talented and hard working Beth. She has chosen Green & Pink for Challenge #161, this opens up so many possibilities so why not join in with us and send us your work here
My inspiration for this challenge was a paper pad called Love Letters I found amongst my stash .... luckily all the papers were various shades of Pink and Green which made my life so much easier. I decided on an easel card one of my favourite cards and so simple to make.

I made the base of my easel from some lovely cream hammered card which holds it's shape beautifully, then I chose my papers and layered them up, I decided the top layer was to be banner shaped which I cut out freehand.  I spent a lovely afternoon making my flowers and foliage, something  I have  always enjoyed doing so now all that was left to do was the sentiment, I searched through my stash and then I remembered the craft magazine I had bought which had many stamps in the style of Rennie Mackintosh as a freebie..... and there it was 'May your Day BLOOM with happiness ... perfect.

The best thing about easel cards is that they fold down really flat for posting which is always something to think about.

This time I will have to make a box to hold this card in because of the 3D flowers but as I will be giving it to my lovely Daughter in Law by hand it will be simple enough, I hope she likes it. I better get on with making the box then..... so bye for now xxx Annie
