Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. So happy that you popped in for a visit!!
I'd like to wish all my Aussie peeps a very happy Australia Day!! Hope you all had a great time.
We had a lovely day here. Hubby and I went over to a friend's house for a BBQ and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!
Today I have another card to share and the reason I added the 'Happy' to my title is that this card is made with product from two prize wins!!! The first, of course, being the gorgeous Pion Design papers which I've had for a while now, and the other is the prize I won from Scrapmatts through Helen Tilsbury's Blog Hop a while ago. I actually received these chippies as I was making this card so they came in very handy. A big THANK YOU to both Helen and Scrapmatts for my amazing Blog Hop win!!!!
Now, I should have been making more masculine cards but felt the need to do something 'pretty' so I made another feminine one, with flowers, of course.
As stated before, the papers are from Pion Design. I have thoroughly enjoyed creating with these. The patterns are very subtle but oh so pretty!! Unfortunately it doesn't really show up very well on these photos.
I love the ripped paper look, so went for that again here. Distressed the edges but, as I didn't want them to look aged, I didn't bother to ink them. I just crumpled them up a bit and did some doodling around the edges with a white gel pen.
I used a scoreboard to create the lines on the base paper to give it that corrugated look as a bit of added interest and then cut a doily in half and inserted that between the two layers of DP.
The flowers are a mix of Prima, Kaisercraft and Ribtex and the leaves were cut on my Silhouette. There are also some Magnolia Ink gem strays tucked in between. Placed some gauze underneath the cluster as well, it just softens the outline a bit ...
... and here is part of my prize from Scrapmatts!! The gorgeous Happy Birthday chippie!!! I simply coloured it a little with some Versa Magic 'Cloud White'. The blue ribbon is from my stash.
Here is a better look at those gem sprays.
So, there we are. A feminine card 'happily' made with two fantastic give-aways from two totally amazing Companies. Thank you again to Pion Design and Scrapmatts and also, of course, to Helen Tilsbury. You made my day guys ... Thank you all ... you are amazing!!!
And thank you too, my lovely visitors for dropping in and letting me share this with you.
Please do take care and God Bless.
