No not the creamed rice variety but basic grey paper pad. Bought this as I thought the colours were so vibrant for spring cards. They work really well together and my pad is almost finished! Really like the pads and the easy way it is to choose papers. Anyway this card is a commisioned one for a 70th birthday. A lady at work asks me to make all her cards now and is really pleased with her families reaction to the personalised touch. Well it all helps fund (or in reality a minute portion) my stamp addiction.
This card is 5 and a half inches square. The stamp is one I bought from the well known auction site ages ago and have not used. Now I have it may not find its way back to the box for a while! I have coloured it in using my fabby dabby promarkers and layed up 3 of the flowers. Accented the flowers, the spout and some of the little flowers with glossy accents. Punches used woodware and stampin up, sentiments from pink petticoat. As you can see for the second pic Ive carried it on inside the card - I really like this look and think it finishes it off really well.

  2. A lovely card, the flowers look great!

  3. Beautiful card, that is such a great image. I was reading the Thornbirds when Meghann was born. How strange nobody has ever asked me that before. I love the book and the way the name is spelt.
    Have a good weekend
