In The Garden

A lot of my cards recently have been square and scalloped, which I find are easier to make and easier to photograph. However there are a few challenges this week that are calling for shaped cards, so I decided to have a go at a triple easel card. I found a fantastic, idiot-proof (just what I need!) tutorial courtesy of Sheryl which you can find here, thank you Sheryl! I still managed to get some scallops in though as you can see! I love this Penny Black Stamp and it was so easy to break down into the three components for my card. I wasn't very happy with the photo, the flowers have come out far too like neon pink for my liking, but it got to the point of stamping on my camera in frustration, so I have had to go with what I've got!
