Thank You Card

I love Easter weekend.
It's such a good time to get into some craft and card making -  though once again my intentions, and the reality didn't quite gel ...
Still, I have managed to complete a card for this week's Muse challenge. Tracey's card is light, summery, bouncy and fun.
My husband saw it and reminded me of my first ever Jofy stamp set (n.9), the flowers in it are all circles.
I wanted to keep my coloured spaces light and open like Tracey's so I used chalks for the first time in ages. I kept to the same colours and added some fine glitter to the flowers for a touch of sparkle.
I searched through my whole stash of coloured card (plain & patterned) to frame my finished picture before mounting it on the card.
This took a while and was a great opportunity to remind myself what I had (lots of ideas for later), but in the end I decided it just looked fine on the tall blue card base ... I didn't even ink the edges.

Well - the glitter doesn't show up much- but I know it's there 😊.
It's a nice card but seems like very little to show for the best part of Easter weekend .... there was an earlier card attempt & I still like the ideas in it so will work on that one again later + I have been attempting a triptych, slowly ... and have made some progress but am nowhere near complete.
I've wanted to attempt one for ages to expand from card making (which I love) into other forms of paper crafty-ness.
The best news is there is still one day of the Easter break left ... and a whole chocolate bunny 😊
Happy Easter,
