Bonne Chance!

Eve has her French speaking exam this afternoon as part of her French GCSE. Here's the card I made for her.
I'm so pleased with this one - one of my best, even if I say so myself.

The flowers were made by using a punch we bought at the craft fair recently and then putting the cutouts in a special press that came with it to turn them into 3d shapes. I used silver card for the flowers and that added a drop of pink glitter glue to the centres. The paper I found in my store room was ideal, it really matched the flowers perfectly. The side of the card was created with another punch - also bought at the craft fair.

Did you notice the doily the card is standing on? Yes, it's the new pansy doily. I finished it last night and blocked it today. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out and that I managed to reconstruct the pattern (almost exactly!) I'll publish the pattern in the next post but I need to sort all the photos out first.
