Hello … bonjour! I’ve been wanting to join in with a couple of challenges for rather a while … and at the weekend, got the chance to make a card inspired by both. What’s even more amazing than me getting chance to make a just-for-fun card (!) is that a DT member at one of the challenges posted a card today (here) that was so similar to mine it was spooky. It had me wondering whether I should go back to the drawing board and do something else. However, on the basis that my card was made, the Time Eating Monster is still prowling around with gusto, and there aren’t many days left before Mr Linky swings the doors shut, I’m sticking with it …
A one layer card with this gorgeous Concord & 9th bloom (NBUS) … stamped and heat embossed … and coloured with Zigs. The sentiment’s from Avery Elle (it has a font that seems to go so well with the style of the flower) … also heat embossed … and I added a scattering of black bling. I puzzled over the bling (I know you know what I mean!) … two groups of three makes six … eek, an even number … not necessarily a Good Thing. It just looked right though, so I left it for a while … and then realised why it was fine … there are black dots of pollen on the flower that make up the visual triangle with the bling … puzzle solved!
I’m playing along at …
Where Creativity Meets C9 – Celebration … the first of what I hope will be hundreds (or more)!
Inspired By All The Little Things – Inspiration below … my first time joining in on the fun!
SSS Monday – Powder, Powder … heat embossed flower and sentiment
I’ll be back on Thursday with a brand new challenge at Time Out that you’re going to love … see you then! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
