It’s time for a new challenge over at Sentimental Sundays – and this week, our theme is Anything Goes!
My time has been stretched quite thin recently – I’ve taken on a more active role in the family business, my school commitments have increased and I’ve had a lot of DT projects on the go, so it was quite nice to play along with this challenge and just switch off and see what happened!!
What happened was this: messy desk, very inky fingers; snippets of paper everywhere; buttons, brads and thread hanging from every available surface!! And the result was this lovely flower birthday card….
The flowers were cut on the Silhouette from a piece of aqua cardstock and shaded using a mixture of Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feather ink pads. Some of the petals were embossed with Sea Foam embossing powder (although it wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped, I think it looks OK when the flower is assembled), while I doodled on other petals with a white Jelly Roll pen. One flower had some silver Brilliance daubed in the middle and on the edges of the petals.
The whole lot was popped together on a doily mat, on top of some Peacock Feather stained card, which in turn was laid on a dry embossed piece of aqua cardstock.
And then it was time to tidy up 😦
Head over to Sentimental Sundays to see how the rest of the DT played along with the challenge!

I hate the tidy up time, too! 🙂 But your card is stunningly lovely! Those paper flowers are just adorable!
Thanks so much for your lovely comment Becca 🙂
