Pink and green thank you


The shimmery flowers were decoupaged and stuck on to the oval that was torn round a template. The papers were from my offcuts box, so an opportunity to join in the playground fun at Pixie's crafty snippets for week 71 (think I need another gentle turn on the swings because it's not as warm as I thought it would be today).

The narrow panel down the left hand side is some sticky ribbon and the 'thank you' sentiment is acetate, so I ran it through my little Xyron X to save any sticky mess.

The holly and the ivy


For today's challenge for the Christmas Card Club, Zoe asked us to make a clean and simple one layer card.

I've based my card on the sketch given for CAS on Sunday 7:


And have used colours for Less is more 118, where this colour wheel was given, with the challenge to use two opposite colours, so I chose green and red:


This is also for CAS-ual Friday 100: tic tac toe - I chose the middle line: square card, bling, text.

Stamps are Elusive Images 'holly ivy mix' inked with Brilliance pearlescent ivy and coloured with Crayola colouring pencils. I added four red gems for a bit of bling.
