A Spray for my Bonnet.....

"Hello Everyone and a Happy Easter".

My weekend this Easter is one shared with Family and Friends, a quiet day today, but may not be on Monday when Precious arrives, she is like a tornado, not in the destructive sense but more like a tempest where upheaval reigns, but I love every moment, probably as I know it is short lived.......Ha




I hand made all the flowers, using the TH Tattered Florals Die. The papers are a mix of watercolour (my own) and  Prima.




I used cotmans watercolours to make my Bg I wanted a soft and pretty effect, and I think I achieved it.




I added some lace, ribbon, pearls and net.
The TH Distressed Doily was used for the bottom of the card.


                                                                             

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend,
Smiles:)
