Paper Pieced Floral Grunge

 Morning and I made another card using the Floral Grunge stamp from Chocolate Baroque I made another Diamond Point card and paper pieced the image using papers from my stash,dies from Crafters Companion.I made the card for a blogging friends birthday and it has now been received-she loved it thank goodness. Those who look a little closer will notice I missed cutting off under the petal on the right hand side but noticed it too late!!!

A beautiful card Carol and I wouldn't have noticed the uncut petal if you had mentioned it. I hope things improve for you all soon xx

Carol L said...

You've made another one of those pretty point cards and I wouldn't have noticed the untrimmed petal had you not mentioned it! I'm so sorry there's so much sadness to deal with these days - I'm thinking this Mercury in retrograde must have something to do with it, because things are going in a downward spiral here as well! Chin up, tomorrow will be better and always smile :) Sending healing hugs and take care of that eye!

Jean said...

Leslie Miller said...

Goodness, Carol, I admire your pretty card with the interesting fold, and love how you brought the card base papers forward into the flower. Then I read your note at the and and I'm so sorry to hear the distressing news about Helen and Hollie and your eye! I've never had a stye, but can imagine it is quite irritating. I hope Hollie recovers soon and has no lasting effects. The world keeps trying to get back to normal, but COVID keeps interfering.

Faith A at Daffodil Cards said...

I love how you have put together this gorgeous card, such delicate colours and I love the diamond shape.
I'm so sorry to hear about Helen, Carol, it is so worrying especially when you can't do anything but be there! Been there got the T shirt! Poor Hollie, I hope she is better soon and then your stye? My mother used to say it's a sign of being rundown? With what you have on your plate it seems it could be. Healing prayers and thoughts for you all.

Oh dear, I have got behind with my visits. I do love your diamond point cards, in fact you have inspired me to make one for my husbands birthday tomorrow. Love your paper piecing, it really ties the background into the flower. So sorry you have been a bit under the weather with your stye. I hope it is better now xx said...

Beautiful card and sorry to hear that you are all having a tough time at the moment. I hope Hollie is over the worst now and that Helen is now improving with the support that she is getting. Take care all of you, Michelle x
