I'm beginning to think I have sixth sense, you know. While at the papercraft show the other day, I picked up a load of beautiful papers by October Afternoon, just randomly, because I liked them. Then, low and behold, I find that they are perfect for use in some of the current challenges - see, sixth sense.
This week (only just!), the Daring Cardmakers Friday challenge is 'Tweetie Pie', i.e. to include a bird in your project. Then Little Red Wagon posted their new challenge, which is a colour challenge:
The colours in this picture are 'just me' - beautiful soft aquas and pinks - and the setting is so 'country'. I could imagine folk art vases on the bedside, full of pretty, blousy peonies. Mmmm - perfect place for a weekend away!
Thinking about these two challenges, my mind immediately went to one of the sheets of paper I had purchased. It has a lovely folk art-like pattern, in aqua and cerise/red and, as luck would have it, sweet little love birds are the main focus. Therefore, it seemed only right that I should use it for a card, but I really wasn't sure how, particularly as my mojo is a little low at the moment because of my illness. Then the mojo fairy paid a flying visit and, presto!, the card was made:
Tools: EK Success Retro Flower punches; Floral Punch leaf spray (can you tell these are my favourites tools at the moment?!)
