The second worked out better but I had a bit of a disaster with it and somehow managed to break of the holed top while trying to attach it to the link for the charm. So I filed it smooth and used it as an embellishment anyway.
As is my usual I've decorated the inside
and the back.
- Cardstock: White card to make a 6” x 6” base card; dark green card for matting the topper
- Design Paper: Paper taken from Papermania, Henbury Lane, Poinsettia A4 Pack
- Robin charms: Bird stamps taken from Papermania Tweet stamp set & Sheena Douglass, A Little Bit Sketchy 2, Faith; Inkssentials clear shrink plastic; Archival ink pad, jet black; markers, red & brown; jewellery findings to make chain.
- Other Items: Lili of the Valley, Cute Squares, Christmas Animals; Flower Soft, polar white; Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn, green double stitched ribbon; red die cut bow & sentiment from the Poinsettia A4 Pack, as DP; Wild Orchid Crafts, red mulberry paper poinsettias (CX-00032)
I wasn't too sure how this card would turn out as it kind of developed as I went along, especially with the disaster with the shrink plastic - a lesson learned!
To finish today here is a photograph of an April rainbow that appeared just in front of our house, taken just yesterday evening.
