So sorry have blogged recently, unfortunately my poor grandad had a heart attack last week, at 95 there is not alot they can do for him, but keep him comfortable, so card making have to take second place for a while. I have managed to make this little card, using the new lace die from Nellie Snellen, you cut the frame then which has slots in, and carefully attach the flower die cuts through them.  My daisy image by Elisabeth Bell has been watercoloured, and attached under the frame.  All the flowers are handmade and coloured using distress inks, and embellished with pearls.
