Set of 4 very simple crocus cards

Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well with you :o)
This is a set I made using my crocus photographs taken at the same time as the birds (see previous post) last week at St Chad's Water. I do go to St Chad's Water  often as it is only about 3 miles away from me. When I just want to get a bit of fresh air for half an hour or so it is very peaceful and tranquil there.

I have long thought of making a set using the card suit shapes but never got around to it until now.
I opened the photograph in PSE5,  cropped the shapes and saved as PNGs, then printed and hand cut them out, stuck them on to yellow card then hand cut again.
Base card is white linen cut and folded to 6x6, then layers with orange card and Kay&Co paper which I bought nearly 7 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Leaf vine die is from Memory Box and the sentiment stamp is from Stamps and Smiles.
I am quite pleased with the results, I hope you are too :o)

LOVE these card designs Jackie - so creative and such a fab idea. I love your crocus photographs - you are such a whizz with your camera. I especially love the gorgeous diecut underneath each photo too. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for your lovely comments - they cheered me greatly after spending this morning at hospital :-)

Beautiful as always!!!!! My dear crocus didn't come up this year...I guess they croaked! You made your steps sound so easy, but each one took love and time. I really like the way you use the suit shapes and of course, I love those Memory Box dies. Wish I could buy them all...from my check book it looks like I'm getting it done...haha
