Hello craft lovers and welcome to my blog. Hope your day is going well.
Sally is hosting the new Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and it is to make something for a special woman in your life. It would also be nice if you would share with us who your creation is for.
As usual, anything you enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, home decor .. as long as it is for a Special Female.
This is another scheduled post as I am still away Cruising with my darling hubby!!
Before I show you my card I need to tell you that this design is not my own. I actually lifted it from Pamellia Johnson at My Little Craft Things. Do yourself a favour and pop over there to take a look at her stunning creations. You will be gobsmacked just like I was. Her work is awesome and, if you like wildlife, she shares the most amazing photos of the birds and squirrels that abound around where she lives. She feeds these little critters and takes the most wonderful photos. I love visiting her blog.
So, onto my contribution to the Challenge.
The papers are from Maja's Vintage Summer Basics Collection. I actually managed to lay my hands on a 6 x 6 paper pad and I really, really, REALLY (LOL!!) love these papers. The main flowers (the two large blooms and the rose bud) are from Megs Garden. If you know my works you also know that these are my fave, go to flowers. They come in a creamy white version and they are so easy to colour.
The main reason I love this design, apart from the fabulous layers, is the two hidden tags on the front. I do love putting tags on cards, and I really adore these little hidden beauties.
The basic design is pretty much exactly like Pamellia's. The sizes may be different and the colour certainly is. Also, I don't have a focal image and I have added a few different embellies, like the prills.
Other than that though, this is a straight up lift.
The bow is made from seam binding and it was coloured with Peacock Feathers Distress Spray Stain.
I also decorated the inside, like I usually do.
I do hope you have found some inspiration here to join in with our "Special Woman' Challenge.
