Aud Sentiments Challenge #87 Anything BUT a Birthday Card


Hi everyone, it's time for some more inspiration for the current challenge at Aud Sentiments. 

Our challenge this fortnight is to make something that is

NOT A BIRTHDAY CARD

but don't forget a sentiment.

We are sponsored by Kathryn from Stamp Art Design.
 
 
Kathryn also let the design team pick an image to use, so I chose Pretty Petals and here is what I made...................
 
 
I have made a digital card using Craft Artist Professional 2. The flowers have been coloured digitally for the main image and then I used the stamp feature for the background. The papers I used are by Krystal Hartley and are called Just A Number - they are currently a free download. The sentiment at the bottom came with the image.
 
I would also like to add my thanks to those of you who sent me your thoughts during this difficult time after my Mum passed away.
I am currently having good and bad days - I met someone who used to look after her in the care home and burst into tears yesterday.
I am lucky to have the support of my family and friends which has helped no end.
 
Hugs to you all
 
I would like to enter the following challenges:-
 
 
Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge - Anything Goes,
 
Creative Corner Challenge - Anything Goes,
 
Craft Your Passion - Summer Flowers, and,
 
Papertake Weekly - Flower Power.
 
Look forward to checking out your creations.

oops! Thank you for letting me know about my wrong link! sorry about that, I do get muddled! It was for Challenge 87, anything but a birthday card, I seem to have linked my card #95 back to the challenge blog. I've entered two cards I'm also number 257, that seems to be ok! it's just my #95 that links back to the challenge and not my blog! sorry!
