Sample No.4 for Sarah

As I promised last week here is the one of the last three samples that I have created with Sarah Hallams new Cd Yesteryears Floral Vase Edition from . Sarah will be previewing this new Cd on Sunday at 12noon on Create and Craft.
I created today card with the beautiful Rose design, the topper was a heart shape so I cut it out completely and mounted it onto a piece of dark pink pearlescent card and cut around it freehand and used a piece of foam tape them stick together. The tag was also printed from the embellishment sheet and I then used a stamp to put the sentiment on it, I cut this out and mounted this also onto another piece of the same pink card, punched a hole through and threaded a piece of pink ribbon through it.
The main card is another piece of Icepearl card, which I have put through my printer and printed both side with a gorgeous backing paper design of Sarahs, and then created a stubby diamond card by using the measurements I found in one of my magazines.
I then stuck my mounted heart topper on the diamond shape at the top, and the sentiment tag at the bottom. To finish of Ive popped a large pink bow above the topper at the top.
We are back to being snowed in again, it came down quite thickly last night, and its getting to be a real pain, as Ive been waiting for a parcel to be delivered by UPS since last Wednesday and they keep putting on their van to be delivered and not quite reaching us, its quite funny as the post is getting through but obviously they carnt.

Oh Shirley your card is stunning, love the soft colours it's so pretty.
We had heavy snow again last night and still no post! It's been over a week now but a UPS van delivered a parcel to my son on Monday, so I'm the opposite to you!

Oh Shirley, a taste of Summer days, how glorious.

I do like the shape of the card as well, looks difficult but think I might have a try to see what I cpme up with - think I'm a closet origami lover.
