Just 4U

I made a card for Mother's Day, only this card is too pink and girly for my Mum!! It's so pretty and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

Also I wanted to point out I only used fabulous adhesives from a relatively new company called Stix 2 Anything.  The PVA worked really well to adhere the paper rose to the Crochet by Kim flower and then that to the card over the fern leaves and bling.

And love this with the hint of green pearls from the FWAB Chloe flourish.

 I decided to use a Z fold card for my base, using the lovely pale green shimmer cardstock from Twiddleybitz.  I then decided to make windows...

I played around with placement for a bit and how to make the layers work...
I leave 'handles' on my little letters now and I get less paint etc on my fingers!!

and if you start to pull it open...

This is the inside - I will write along the top of the "U" page as it's hidden by the leaves when on display :-)

This is just a shot of the 'backside' of the card - I have painted the back of the "4" with the same pearl paint now though :-)
