I don't know where today has gone, I think I spent too long over the crossword today and wasted a lot of time pottering around!
Anyway, whatever took my time, when I finally got into the craft space to do a bit of crafting, I had no idea what I was going to make :)
After much humming and hawing, fiddling and faffing, etc., here's what I came up with ... a card that just sort of developed as I went along. The rose organza trim was the starting point - a length has been tucked away in my stash since last year. One of those items I've been itching to use but never quite decided how, though I did think perhaps I might use it in a scrap layout at some point. As it turned out, today was the day to use some of it for sure.
Because it would have been a shame to have to cut through one of the flowers, the card has been made to fit a length three flowers wide.
- Base card: a leftover piece of white cardstock trimmed to form a tent-shaped card measuring 5¾" x 4"
- DPs: Papermania Mono Capsule Collection; snippet of My Mind's Eye, So Sophie "Sweet Chic"
- Topper: My Mind's Eye Graceful "Little Lady" Sticker - matted on to a snippet white card - and mauve rose from Prima
- Embellishments: Magnolia doily; baker's twine; rose organza trim; snippet of purple bling; purple button and self-adhesive gem - all from stash
- Handmade hatpins
I am going to submit this card to the following challenges:
Shelly's Images - Anything Goes
Crafts and Me - Pearls and Lace
Card and Scrap - Vintage
Freshly Brewed Challenges - Tic Tac Toe - Flowers, Patterned Paper, Bling
Hooked on Crafts - Flowers
and, of course, a card that has snippets and leftovers in its makings just has to be submitted to our lovely Di's challenge, that is:
Right, time to hit the hay - I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend with lots of opportunities for some crafting time. Oh, and I hope it's warmer wherever you are ... it's downright chilly here!
