Something New

Woo hoo I got a card made today!!  I have an excuse to sit down and craft!!  Honestly.  For some unexplained reason my leg hurts - just beside my knee - the more I walk around the worse it gets, so I have self medicated some rest!  But rather than sit idle I got out my craft stuff and made this card:

The theme for the Funky Hand July challenge was a creation for 'something new'.  I don't know why this popped into my head as I do not know anyone that is starting a new job, other than me going back to work in January :( - however I thought that it is always good to have these kind of cards handy - just in case!

All the papers are from Funky Hand - Funky Daze.  As you can see I have cut 4 sqaures to from the basis of the background and used Banana Frog Stamps to create the faux stitching around each of the panels.  I downloaded the four leaf clover template from the internet and printed it onto the Funky Hand paper twice, cut around and inked the edges.  I placed the two four leaf clovers directly on top of each other, securing the bottom one flat to the card.  The second was just glued in the middle and curled at the edges to add dimenstion.  I used a white sakura gel pen to add detail to the clover.

The sentiment was stamped using a Studio G alphabet stamp and mounted onto card.  This card did not take me long at all.  Good job as my children were getting a bit restless and needed some attention.  Well I am off to sit with my feet up to try and rest this knee.  TTFN Vx
