Easter or Spring Sentiment

Hello! My goodness it's been a while since I blogged. Let me explain...I had an internet disaster and my browser went a little haywire. I'm not the most clued up on troubleshooting and I lost all access to Blogger, which kept kicking me out for having "suspicious requests" from my browser!

However I have now installed three different browsers and an antivirus, and found one combination that works! Phew!

So I'm back with another design team creation for Aud Sentiments, where this fortnight our theme is an "Easter or Spring Sentiment".

A Day for Daisies has graciously agreed to sponsor this challenge and provided me with a stunning image to use!

It was beautiful, as you can see below.

As soon as I saw it I thought of a card I had seen on Pinterest which paper pieced an old book for the girl's hair. I decided to recreate it.

Here's my creation:

I made this in Serif Craft Artist 2 Professional, and made use of my newest purchases. I used a kraft paper background, then paper pieced old book pages into the image. There is a slight shadow on the book page sections to add some depth.

Then I used the Digiboss Border Dies to add some embossed detail, and used the embroidery stitches to add some decorative edges to my layers!

I hope that you like my creation. I'm slowly getting used to crafting with a baby in one hand and my laptop in the other.
