Good morning, oh thank goodness its Friday. My weeks seem to get busier and busier lately so I'm well ready for the weekend and a crafting fix. I usually try and have an hour in my craftroom everyday but I haven't managed to do any crafting at all this week and I'm having withdrawal symptoms lol. Anyway as its Friday, its time for a new challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog and this time our theme is 'Butterflies and Blooms'. Our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop :-)
Sorry about the dark pic, we've had such dark days lately until this week when its been wall to wall sunshine. For my card I've used a lovely warm yellow paper from Crafty Ann's mottled stone collection, the image is called 'Host of Golden Daffodils' and comes with two beautiful sentiments all for the bargain price of 75p!! Anyway I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut out before matting on a pretty doiley. I've stamped a Chocolate Baroque swirl in the corners using picket fence distress stain and inked with wild honey distress ink to highlight the swirls. To finish off I've added seam binding and gingham ribbon, lace, faux pearls and some little butterflies made using an Anna Griffin punch.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and me: flowers
Crafty Creations: pastels pearls and lace
Crop Stop: Doileys
Southern Girls: die cut or punch
Top Tip Tuesday: Dig out the old (my old stash is my gingham ribbon and doiley)
Right I'd better get my skates on and get ready for work, another day another dollar as they say.
Thanks for popping by
