Au natural


The play date cafe challenge 176 is:


Also for the photo challenge for Just add ink 160:


My card is very simple using a die cut shape that has a feint image on the side and shading around the edges, with the addition of three prima flowers with pearls.

The sentiment stamp is by Funstamps inked with memento rich cocoa.


This is also for:

Embroidered red flowers


I bought these embroidered red flowers off a market stall in Eastbourne when we were there last year. They are almost too good to use on a card, but I thought they looked nice on the die cut circle matted on to the doily and then on to the blue shaped card blank.

Black and white


Four quick black and white cards using black card blanks and Kanban toppers that I found in my stash - must have been there for a long time. The first and second are like mirror versions of each other, as are the third and fourth cards.

These are for Annabelle 160:

I like adventures ...


... and I'm going to find some. This is a quote from Little Women by Lousia May Allcott and is one of the quotes given for the April book challenge on The house of bears. The Craft room challenge this week is 'in the library' - books, so this is also for that. Also, Jellypark friends is 'it's all about a book', so this is good for that.

 I've used an ATC that I made long ago and didn't swap it. The image is part of a Faye Whittaker All our yesterdays stamp, coloured with distress inks. The embossed butterfly background was created with a folder.


This is also for:

City crater 153: anything goes (sort of) - I used an embossing folder

Another doily card


Another shaped card using a doily and lots of lovely glittered Martha Stewart flowers.

After I'd taken the photo I realised that the card wasn't standing properly because you can see the edge of the fold higher up than it should be (can't be bothered to do it again now).

Inspired by Moxie fab world Tuesday trigger: friendly flowers:
