Card for Cariena

A very good day to all of you! Hope you are all doing well.

I did this card for a friend, Cariena Basson, who said she's never had a parchment craft card in her hands. I've done it some time ago already, but did not want to spoil it for her blogging it before she received it. She received it today.

This is also from The Language of Flowers by Tatsue Shibata. The card has two layers. The front part is held in place by two of the flowers which is cut loose from the back part partially and the front is then pushed in under these flowers. I thoroughly enjoyed doing this card.

In the meantime I have been working on my N, O & P ATC's for our group swap. See, I am not doing only parchment :-)

Well, we're almost halfway to the weekend. Enjoy what is left of this week and have lots of fun crafting.

Thanks so much for visiting!
