MFT Bold Blooms (Foliage)

Do you ever make a card that you love so much that you almost can't bear to send?
This was one of them and yet it took just a few minutes to make.

Sometimes I can sit for hours and can't make a card for love or money. The ol' mojo does a runner or what I make just doesn't feel right. Those that I pontificate over or stress about for days are the ones that either end up in the bin or push me to the point of selling EVERYTHING (again!)

I love the simplicity of this card. 'Foliagey' cards just make me happy.
I'm weird...I know.

I used one of the leafy stamps from MFT's 'Bold Blooms' and loosely stamped the coloured section. I wasn't worried about stamping it perfectly...I wanted the colour to go over the outlines in a relaxed style.

I personalised it using Memory Box's Classic alphabet die set and added a heap of sequins from Neat & Tangled (Ocean Waves).
I love these leaves..., they'd be great in autumnal colours. Hmmmmm....might try them on Christmas cards, coloured with glitter. 
Have a groovy weekend X

Sometimes the C&S ones are the best! They aloways look elegant if you know what I mean. Omg dont mention mojo's mine was well and truly buggered off - although saying that I did make a start on some cards this week and now its gone again lol - I think should I just sell up or should I buy more incase that helps tempt me back ;-) lol xx Have a great weekend xx
