It’s time for a new challenge over at Crafting From The Heart! As always, our theme is Anything Goes, which makes it so easy to play along! We have some great sponsors again this week – A Day For Daisies and Aurora Wings!
I chose to use G Is For Girl by A Day For Daisies for my DT project. Believe it or not, I didn’t have a pink and girly card in mind, despite the fact that the image is about all things girly….! However, this card ended up being a very last minute make – something I hate doing as I prefer to take my time over my makes! Unfortunately though, events including a garden makeover, a smashed conservatory window and the school holidays all led to this card being made up against a deadline!
All in all, I’m quite pleased with the results though! The image was so quick and simple to colour – I kept to shades of pink to co-ordinate nicely with the papers and ribbon. The layout is based around the latest sketch challenge over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps, which is such a lovely classic design that I couldn’t resist joining in!
Would you believe that I spent more time on the bow than the rest of the card altogether! The polka dots are only on one side, but I didn’t want to show the plain side on the loops and tails of the bow – I love the way it is only visible at the centre! Let’s just say, it took several dozens tries to get it just right 🙂
That’s it from me today – I hope you get time to pop over to Crafting From The Heart, where even the quickest makes are welcome!!
