Polly Says: Come Waltz With Me...

This is the moment I've been waiting for sooo very patiently. Having checked out the WMS forum this morning for instructions and in the hope that Claire would be opening the blogwaltz early, I busied myself doing a couple of things which I put on the long finger a couple of weeks ago.




So, finally having drawn up the proposals for various schools in the area, whom I hope will be eager to host next years dyslexia workshops, I logged into Facebook for a moment. Surprise! She's already opened the links and I'm behind as usual...

Here goes then! First of all I must apologize for the ghastly photo quality, but I figured that even this is better than forgetting to photograph my cards altogether which is what I normally do.

This card was made for a Mum's birthday using one of my favourite all time stamps from last months stamp release 'Roses In Bloom' by the ever so talented Ms Brennan, hope you like it...


Personally I think it just comes alive with the 3 dimensional touches to the petals and the leaf. It'll never quite replace a bunch of the real thing, but it'll sure last a lot longer!

Much Love,

Polly

ps Claire, I hope your Mum's on the mend!

Polly Pierce said...

Thank you ladies for all your kind comments. This set is just lovely, isn't it? @LaurieJ I coloured the images with Promarkers which are a bit like an English version of Copics...

Lynne Phelps said...

The curled edges on your petals are just wonderful, and the mottled color also lends the look of life! It is also nice to remember that it doesn't have to say Happy Birthday on the front to be a birthday card! Lovely, I know your mom will be thrilled!
