Tricolour Pansy

I have made this card for my Mother in Law, she loves anything Floral and purple and green is one of my favourite colour combinations.


I have used one of Joanna Sheen's Jane Shasky Cardmaking pads and my inspiration came from a card made by Joanna in the Making Cards Magazine, I used two of the Pansy sheets so that I could cut the pansies out and decoupage them.


The gingham paper is from the Jayne Netley Mayhew Digistamp CD and I have used my Simon Says Stamp Mum die, I cut it out three times and layered them up.  The bow is a Lil' Inker Designs die and the scalloped border is a Fiskars edge punch.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
Words 2 Scrap By Challenge 35 - Bloom Where You Are Planted
Feeling Crafty Challenge 28 - One for the Girls/Ladies
Mema's Crafts May Challenge - May Flowers
