Row of Rudbeckias

I wasn't able to make cards for my blog for a wee while as I was busy working on other things but I have a couple ready now to share over the next few days. My mother had a big (!) birthday so we had a lovely family get-together last weekend and it was great to see the "Cambridge contingent" over for a few days.

This card is a little different from my usual style because I usually don't like such a bold colour contrast but I wanted a bright card for someone who is recovering from surgery. I stamped and masked the Rudbeckia images from Tonic Studios'Pick of the Bunch collection to create a row before adding them to embossed card and ribbon with 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L .

I created the beautiful scalloped border with the Border System and Edger 3 in teal for the top and also on the actual card base. On the card base I used the Butterflies Accent punch and backed it with matching teal cardstock.

I know it's a bit early but just thought I should mention - I'm going to be doing a demo of  Tonic punches and some other things in the Paperworks shop at the Linen Green at Dungannon on Saturday 3rd November so if anyone from NI is in the area feel free to call in and introduce yourself  - I'd love to see you.
