I think that the title of this post sounds rather like a nursery rhyme and that has made me feel far more cheerful. God knows I need cheering up with this miserable weather. I'll stop going on about it and get down to crafting now, I promise. Today's entry is another of my calligraphy pen flower cards and I've also used the dottariffics to make the border at the bottom.

What I did and used.
1. First fold a sheet of A4 card in half to make an A5 size card.
2. Then put green dots where you want the flowers to be placed and load the light pink calligraphy pen with a little of the medium pink and get to work on those flowers. It really is easy. All you need to do is small fan shapes around the dot that you placed on the card. Sometimes I made them bigger, sometimes smaller. On others I held the dark tint to the outside. It's up to you. There are no hard and fast rules.
3. Now draw in the stems in and add a few buds.
4. To make the border across the bottom of the card cut a strip of pink card with a scollop scissors of a template. Cue a strip of white card slightly thinner so that when the white is placed on top of the pink, the pink can be seen.
5. Use the thick end of the Dottariffics in pale green to draw lines on the white strip.
6. Tie a knot in some pink ribbon and tape in place behind the strip of border card, Now stick the border card to the base card.
7. Stamp out a sentiment and stick it to the base card with 3d foam pads.
use 3d foam pads to add the dragonfly.
8. Draw a dotty border around the edge of the card and hey presto your card is finished.
