Good morning to you all....... I hope you had a lovely weekend!
This is a card I made for the challenge over at 7 Kids College Fund where the theme is Mardi Gras. I certainly learnt something about this celebration I can tell you..... hop over to the blog for a great history lesson about the colours and what they mean. So the brief is to use the Mardi Gras colours of Purple, Green and Gold. Now this was a challenge and a half for me as I would never normally work with these colours all at once..... but do you know something, I kind of like the combination!
I think my card has turned out a bit like a collage really..... I wasn't sure where I was going with it but wanted to created the feeling of everything swirling around, like Tilda is blowing the leaves and butterflies about. The luscious papers are Webster's Pages and the butterflies were cut from them too. The swirl is Magnolia DooHickey and the leaves are from a Martha Stewart punch. I added a Melissa Frances rub-on for the sentiment.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
