Back to my photographs...

...which I have sadly neglected of late!

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world, here's a few hugs {{{{{hugs}}}}} if you want or need them.

After cutting out some of my own mats, I had several of these squares left so what should I do, throw them in the recycle bin or use them? I had an idea to use two of them so I may have a go at playing  with more of them because I am quite pleased with this effect :o)

Anyhow, on to my card for today.

Basecard is 8x8 ready folded from a Papermania pack.
Striped glittercard layer is from my stash, found it in several colours at the bottom of my glittercard box. Had it so many years I have forgotten where from!
Own thistle photograph taken at Mercia Marine a few weeks ago. I have never seen such large thistles, they were about 10 foot tall and I am not exaggerating, the flowers were huge and perfectly formed. I feathered it in PSP7 then opened it in MS Word and added the sentiment, then printed onto my usual white linencard from The Range before cutting it with an Xcut large circle die.
I intertwined the squares and attached them to the circle before adding them to the card.
It's not very often I say it of my own work but I really like this one :o)
