Birthday card

This card uses the sketch on Lili of the valley challenge 23:

The card uses various offcuts, all with a burgundy theme - I love lilacs and burgundy, so I'm linking for Secret Crafter challenge 24: favourite colour (I seem to have shown a lot of this colour today).

Rainbow Lady's challenge 52 is birthday (I keep forgetting this, even though I've shown other birthday cards) - so I'm linking this.

Cute Card Thursday 52: recipe

For this card for Cute Card Thursday 52: recipe, I've used more of those papers from this morning, plus some little Papermania elements for the recipe: something torn, two pieces of paper and four embellishments:

365 cards day 24: setting the scene

Yesterday's topic on 365 was 'setting the scene' - Krista said: 'I love those cards that create a scene, so I thought we'd give it a try. This time we'll make it a nature scene.'

I've done four quick 'invertage' cards (like decoupage, but the other way round). I had to scan them because any attempt at photos was ending up with a shining glare with the flash, so they don't look as good on here as irl, but you get the general idea:

I just missed the deadline for ABC F for flowers (new challenge today) but am still linking there - lots of flowers on these cards. And this week's Created byhand challenge is also 'flowers'.

365 cards day 25: ad inspired

The challenge on 365 today is 'ad inspired' - 'Use this advertisement to inspire your card creation':

In fact, I was so inspired by using the papers I chose for this that I ended up making three cards.

The main papers are Anna Griffin and the vellum overlays are Papermania.

For the first card, I simply cut out part of a flower from the vellum and overlaid it, tucking a bit in underneath the darker background paper.

The second card has the vellum completely overlaying the flowery paper, with just the bands of paper across the bottom on top of the vellum:

And the third one has a partially cut out flower from the vellum overlaying the two papers:

I enjoyed doing these cards and was so inspired by the colours of the ad.
