* Vera Lane Studio: Flower Crowns


Well - winter has returned here in the UK! Yesterday we had hail and sleet along with strong gusts of wind ...  great weather for cosying up with a book or a good film, or even losing yourself in crafting! 

Today is my Vera Lane Studio DT day and I've made cards with the Flower Crowns digi set which was released last week. The three images are totally adorable and the three sentiments are just lovely! To be honest I can't choose a favourite from these girls, so I made a set!

Here are my cards:

I went for a CAS style so the beautiful ladies can speak for themselves! I coloured the images with Copics and fussy cut them leaving a narrow white border. I placed them, on foam pads, onto  a piece of embossed white card and matted that on colour coordinating card. This was then matted onto white card which was in turn attached on foam tape, for dimension, to the 5 x 5 inch card base. 
I found these gorgeous jewel-coloured mulberry paper flowers by Little Birdie at my local craft store and decided to add one to each card along with a leaf.

There was no room on the front for the lovely sentiments, so I added them on a colour coordinated mat to the inside of each card.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
