Partly, because I absolutely had to try these wonderful polka-dot papers, and mainly because I can't go without crafting for even a week ;)
It's a simple card in green shades that I made using the sketch from cheerfulsketches. In the beginning, I planned to take a digi stamp, paper roses and buttons, and make a Valentine card, but to save time I have chosen to work with a picture from an old calendar.
As the central motif turned out to be a white flower, I thought that paper roses wouldn't fit for the corner embellishment. I punched some matching white flowers instead and cut a dark green swirl. The other embellishments I used are pearls and a lace.
In the end, the card looks like a (male) birthday card to me, or maybe a simple spring/Easter card as green is the colour of hope and new life. And I just can't wait for the first spring flowers ;) After all, nature can't stay grey forever.
