Good afternoon! Happy World Cardmaking Day!! Sorry for being AWOL for over a week now but I'm not sure where time has gone.... the days just seem to fly by and I suppose what with holding down a job and running the kiddos here and there, crafting time can sometimes take a backseat!!!
But here is a card I have managed to squeeze in.... I particularly enjoyed creating my flowers from the backing paper and I think this is maybe quite an underused technique. The cool blues and green tie in quite nicely with this fabulous mini Indian Summer we're having here the UK right now (today is supposed to be the hottest day on record for October).... and is one of those days that makes you feel glad to be alive ;o)
Anyway, I used Kay&Co papers, a vintage Lunagirl image and a Flora Doodle bloom on this card..... plus a pretty paper butterfly and doily and a stunning Tim Holtz sentiment.... the outer border has been faux stitched and all edges have been Distress Inked.
Here are the challenges that fit in with my card today:
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!!
