A bouquet by post, or less is not more in this case!

I'm back. I forgot to say in my earlier post how much I appreciated your good wishes with my return to work today, it certainly helped, so thank you all very very much. I'm not too tired after work and as Hubby is out playing darts tonight I thought I'd do a little crafting.
I wanted to send my friend the equivalent of a bouquet of flowers (cos I'm too cheap to send her proper ones!). I had the urge to go embellishment crazy and I think I achieved that. Apologies for the rubbish photo, the kitchen lights aren't the best for photography.
I started off with the super cute stamp from Stamping Bella, you know me, any excuse to buy something with bunnies on it, which I coloured with copics. I cut the image out using spellbinders label 25 and layered it up with majestic labels 25. I used papers from lili of the valley promises pad and distressed the edges. I then chucked on about 20% of all the paper flowers I have, pearls, crochet lace, organza, a dazzler from creative expressions and I think that's it. Oh and then added some stickles round the edges and with it on my finger tip added a little to the flowers. The little tags are from a lili of the valley tag set and I added a few gems to them. I think that's it, I stopped just short of adding the kitchen sink. Now I've got to make a box to post it in!
I'm going to share this card with the Stamping Bella blog


  1. It's a beautiful bouquet card for your friend with bunnies. I love the silver diecut behind that pretty image. The paper is really pretty and the flowers look gorgeous. Barbxx

  2. Glad you didn't add the kitchen sink as I think this is just gorgeous as is!! Love all the flowers. hugs Mrs A.

  3. Those flowers are so much nicer than the real thing as they'll last much longer. Love the cute image too.

    Hugs Erika. x
