I love cards with lots of white, and so that's what I used for this card. I stamped the flowers (Flowering Vine - found on this page) with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, cut it out with a Nestabilities oval, sponged some light blue ink around the edges before removing it from the die,  and colored with Copics. Then I matted it with black. I put Pop Dots on the top part of it, to make it even with the bottom layer. For the bottom panel, I punched the top with a Martha Stewart fence punch, embossed with a Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, and scored a couple lines with my Scor-Pal. I mounted on Pop Dots. The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions and is also mounted on Pop Dots. I punched the little flowers with a punch from the dollar spot at Michael's, colored with the same blue markers as the main image, and added the pearls to the center. I also added pearls to the centers of the flowers in the main image.

We'd sure love to have you join us! You have nearly a week to enter the Designer's Choice Challenge, too. You can find those details here. The challenge is a Double Dutch Fold card and the prize is a full sheet of unmounted rubber of your choice!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

So pretty. Love the two flowers out of the oval. And the bottom is genius! With the fence post combination it really is cool. Great card!

Beautiful card, as ever, Lynette - sweet little forget-me-nots on your favourite white ground! Your use of white space is very artistic.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - you always appreciate the detail in my work lol!! This was a fun project to make, and given my hubby's love (and mine) for all this Saxon stuff, I think he'll like it all right!!

Hugs,
Shoshi

What a darling sweet card! Way to go -- using the fence and embossing and scoring -- very clever!

This card is soooo lovely. I took the time to explore your blog and sign up for email updates. I don't want to miss any future posts! We also have some things in common as grandmothers, and I have a stamper friend who lives in Plymouth (Linda Muras.)
