Nature's Work at Kraftyhands

Hi Folks
Hope everyone had a good Easter.  We have decided to decorate our bedroom so have been out to order some new carpet and choose paint and wallpaper.  I guess I know what I will be doing for the next few days lol.  

But I will be taking a day off from decorating next Saturday as I am going to Ally Pally for the stamping and scrapbooking show.  Looking forward to getting some new crafty stash and hopefully meeting up with some of my blogger friends.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Kraftyhands.  Our theme for this month is:
Nature's Work
You can enter any project you like just as long as it fits with the challenge theme.  

Here is my inspiration project using images and papers from the Preferably Pastels CD which can be found on the website here.


The image, sentiment and the backing paper are on the CD.  I used some lovely soft yellow card for the matting and a doily behind the image.  For embellishments I added a ribbon bow, crochet flower and crotchet butterfly.  A pearl flourish at the bottom finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to head over to Kraftyhands to check out the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing all your entries.
