Hope you’re having a fun filled and relaxing Saturday. I’ve got that morning after the night before feeling, unfortunately without the benefit of actually having a night before. So, having been deprived all week, a little light crafting was definitely in order before cracking on with chores. Here’s a card that I’ve made to share over at City Crafter Challenge Blog for their current challenge, #209, which is to use all three citrus colours – orange, lemon and lime:
I’ve created mats and layers with white and dusky lime card, running the white card through an embossing folder.
I’ve used some lovely spotted ribbon from my stash and topped it with a lime green bow.
The flowers were cut using a Spellbinders die. I’ve done a double layer for each, to give them a bit of life, and then popped on a button centre.
The finishing touch is a stamped butterfly.
You’d think that I would have been able to rustle up this card without too much mess wouldn’t you? Er…unfortunately, that would be a big fat no! I don’t quite know how I managed to create such chaos, but that’s exactly what I did. I’d take a photograph to show you if I wasn’t so embarrassed!
Thanks for buzzing by.
