Spring green Easter

I don't really feel like doing much tonight, but I've just put together this card, using some BG periphery paper as the background and another torn piece for the strip on the right. The little scalloped topper is one that has been recycled from another card. I thought the PM Easter sentiment stamped on the striped paper (some I found in my offcuts - might use some more of that soon) was just right.

This is for:

Diamond wedding card

Mum needed a diamond wedding anniversary card to send to some friends, so I came up with this simple, but, I hope, stylish card.

This is another card that was difficult to photograph - gave up trying to get it any better. Irl the white is much whiter and the silver is crisper. The inner shape, of course, fits the aperture when closed. The silver sentiment says 'happy anniversary'.

Scarlet's letter birthday wishes

Having used a piece of BG scarlet's letter for this card the other day, I thought I would use similar for this black, white and red card.

Unfortunately, the photo doesn't make the card look as crisp and dark black as it is irl - so much sun streaming in today (not that I'm complaining - bring it on!).

I can't remember what the paper strip is with the glittered little circles - it'[s been in my scraps box for a long time. The chipboard flower and button was from Poundland.

This is for:

Buttons for my darling Bella

For this card I've used some of my favourite Bo Bunny paper 'my darling Bella', hence the title of the post. I love this against the deep pink of the background card and the varying shades of pink of the glittered flowers with the buttons (from Poundland) - just the addition of some stitched ribbon and sentiment and the card is done - the paper doesn't need anything else.

This is for:

Fairytale 11: green + pink
