It’s been a quiet week on the card making front because it’s been a super-busy week on the renovation front (making the best of the good weather and long evenings), and whilst I’ve tried to keep up with what everyone’s been doing, my own doings have been centred around being on scaffolding, getting creative with stone!
I had some delightful news on my ‘return’ (thanks for being the bearer of good news Shirley!) … my French Connection card was showcased at Less is More yesterday … I’m honoured and proud to add the badge to my sidebar … thank you so much, Chrissie and Jen 🙂
I was struck by the flowers, vibrant colours and the circular sentiment, and did this …
… which is a bit different from my usual stuff, but I don’t hate it! I randomly cut different sizes of the same flower shape into a white card panel using Cricut Accent Essentials, backed the panel with some striped DP from Fancy Pants Designs, and added the centres back in. I did try adding gems and pearls in the centres, but it was just too much for the DP. The sentiment’s from Paper Smooches, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed. I used a fineliner to add the dotted border and then popped up the mega pink panel with dimensionals. Why the mega pink? Well, the stripe colours are mega pink, pink, orange, yellow, turquoise, green and brown … and I tried the lot … the mega pink seemed to work best!
I’m hoping to play along with some more challenges over the weekend, but for now I’m off to check out how everyone else was inspired by Virginia’s card. Thanks so much for coming by, I really appreciate your visits and comments! Anita 🙂
