Dashing in with a quick post with 3 more cards to show - Oh I have been a busy bee this weekend! Not sure when I'll next get around to posting though!
First up is to enter the CASE Study challenge which I don't always get chance to play along with but the inspiration photo was so beautiful that I couldn't resist. I've not altered it much at all but I was thrilled to use a brand new die which arrived in the post just in time! It's the Tilda Swirl die from Memory Box which I've cut out twice and rotated the top one so it looks like petals all around. I die-cut a circle from gold glitter card and sprinkled pink beads on to tie the colours together. I've rotated the card and placed a piece of embossed vellum behind the flower which has been embossed with a Birthday sentiment from ... you guessed - Clearly Besotted! A couple of sequins and gems for added sparkle and a strip of washi tape at the right of the card and that's it.
I'm also going to enter this into the CASual Fridays challenge as I've placed the flower so it is just hanging over the edge of the card.
Next up is to join in the celebrations over at Less is More where they are celebrating their 3rd Birthday!!! Well done ladies - I don't know any blog buddies who don't enter these weekly challenges regularly and since I started blogging I've tried to enter every week (give or take a few when I've been stumpt!) Here's to the next 3 years - I honestly don't know how you come up with so many ideas to challenge us but it's fantastic and certainly gets me focussed on a Saturday morning!
The theme this week is 'Rainbow' and this has to go down as one of the quickest cards I've ever made. I've scored some lines across the card for added detail, used a sentiment from the wonderful Clearly Besotted then a selection of coloured gems from my stash.
And last but by no means least is my entry to CAS Colours and Sketches where this week it's a duo challenge to use the sketch and colour scheme.
Once again it's the Clearly Besotted products I've reached for as these sets are new to me and I love the birds right now - you may have noticed on some of my other cards!
I've used the Love Birds and Paired Up sets plus a sentiment from the 'It's you Birthday' stamp set plus a couple of pink pearls from my stash.
Ok that's definitely it for me for today - my fingers need a break from typing! Perhaps I'll go and do some cutting and sticking instead!!!
Catch you all soon.
