FLOWER FOLD WITH TAG PUNCH-OUTS

Tried my hand at another flower folding technique.  I have used one of my Paper Shapers tag punches.  This is a quick technique which makes a great visual impact.  Once again this is a centre step card.  The sentiment is computer generated.








Once again I would like to enter this creation into a few challenges:

Saw your post on MIM and have to have a closer look. I am now follower 60 on your blog. What darling children and such great photography! I want to return and have another look at your scrapbook pages. I am just beginning to scrapbook. I like the way that you have creatively used several pictures on a page.

  22. Hello Desiree

    I had seen your comments and so pleased to know you are back blogging.

    Afraid I don't get 'out and about' in blogland too much, but I really wanted to come and say how much your kind words about the photos of my cards meant to me.

    I have always admired your wonderful photography and of course your lovely cards and this one is no exception, so very elegant, not to mention the beautiful sentiment.

    I always struggle with photography and am rarely happy with the results and not helped by a son and DIL who are professional photographers and always say "it's all about perspective Mum".

    Have a lovely day.
