Love and blooms

Hi all, hope you're all have a lovely evening, woo it's nearly the weekend! I've lost my mojo today, not really sure why...I keep *almost* going for some stamping retail therapy, but then remembering my new rule about using up (or at least using once!) what I have before I'm allowed to buy anymore. Boohoo!!

I'm going to share a new card with you that I made earlier in the week. I tried another new technique with my marianne creatables flowers, I discovered this video when googling about how to use dies. I'm not sure mine turned out quite as they are in the video, but I guess not bad for a first attempt?! I was trying to get more of a rose than a carnation shape, I stickled their centres a little once they'd dried too.

The Love and Heart toppers have been sat in my stash for years and I'd completely forgotten about them until I was digging around for some brads for the flowers and found these too!

I also coloured in red, I'm quite scared of copics and red and have been convincing myself that I need some more reds to be able to get it to work! What do you think? Leave me a comment if you visit please!

Here's a front on view of the card, I used the sketch over at City Crafter

And a close up of Tilda

And this gorgeous rosey ribbon I found at John Lewis of all places, I'm worried it going to become one of those things that I don't use because it's just so cute! Lol!

Well, I hope you've all enjoyed seeing this and my mojo comes back soon and I dont spend any money in the meantime lol!

Thanks for stopping by!
