.....morning everyone....its been a while I know....one of those weeks where just living seems to take over everything else! Anyway, for some unknown reason I was wide awake at 5:30am this morning, so like any other normal human being I decided to make a card! Thats normal isn't it??!
This cute little card fits in with two different card challenges that are running this week. Firstly we have this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge where the lovely ladies have asked to see projects with a friends theme. The sentiments used by the DT on their cards are all sooo cute, take a peek here to see them. Over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog they would like to see projects that include a tag, ticket or label. The DT have come up with some wonderful designs, take a peek here to see them.
So I decided to go with an old saying that always makes me smile. I've themed my card around friendship and flowers, with a red and black colour combo. Looking at the card now I kinda wish i'd used a red backing paper first and then layered on top of that, but hey...coulda, shoulda, woulda!! I started with a black blacking paper, which is topped with some red and white polka dot paper and my hand coloured image, surrounded with a plain black border. I've used two strips of black ribbon with cute little flowers on, to match my blakc borders. I have created a tag for my sentiment, and that is raised up using 3D sticky pads. Then last but not least I've used some punched flowers in black and red in the bottom corner. Even without the right border I think I'd love to get this card from a friend - I like the colour combo because its bold, just like the sentiment!
I'm still a little bemused as to why I was awake so early this morning....I did try to get back to sleep, but nothing seemed to work, so I gave up! Does anyone have any tips for getting back to sleep in the wee hours?!? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a fab day!
