#110 Field of Flowers

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - beads
Sponsor & prize this week - Digi Doodle ($10 gift certificate)

My DT card today uses an image from our sponsor this week, Digi Doodle, called 'Field of Flowers' and, coloured with Promarkers in traditional Easter colours, my young gal collecting her posy is surrounded by entwining threads onto which I had added tiny beads of yellow, white, green and lilac.  So small in fact they were difficult to get onto the thread as most needles were too wide at the eye to go through the centres - and even then only some could accommodate the needle going through.  Nothing like preseverence is there. LOL.  The yellow thread was wrapped spirelli style around the sun-like spikes of a design I cut myself from pastel yellow pearlescent cardstock before being layered on top of another 'sun', cut this time in white.  I also cut my own flower-shaped base card from lilac pearlescent card.

For the inside of the card, I cut white solid flower shapes and then added some of the pearlescent lilac left-overs from the base card shape I had cut out.  (Don't like waste - especially pretty pearlescent waste! LOL).  This was definitely too nice to bin so used it as decoration.  I replicated the image on the inside, though smaller & uncoloured so it was like the centre of it's own flower but I left the other side clear so that I could add my own hand-written sentiment &  'from'  later.  Sometimes a bit of hand-writing is so much more personal than a printed generic verse/sentiment don't you think?   Depends who the card is going to I suppose.  Hope you like it!
