I love popping by everyone's blogs to see what they've been making and recently the wonderful Faye made a gorgeous card that really inspired me. I've never been that great at clean and simple cards.....I find it hard to stop adding to cards!! But Faye has an absolutely gorgeous framed clean and simple card on her blog that I fancied trying for myself. I checked with Faye to see how she created the frame and after playing around for a bit I created the following:
Isn't it cool?? I've stamped my cakes in the bottom right hand corner of the card and added my sentiment to the top left hand corner. I then added a doodled frame and coloured the cupcakes with my pencils. Finally I added a little sparkle with my red stickles.
I'm so pleased with how this turned out - thanks Faye for your advice!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - clean and simple
Cute Card Thursday - a touch of sparkle
Encouraged by my first creation I decided to try another one....
This one I have changed the frame slightly, using a distinct double line. I've also added more colour to the card, creating a background for my hot air balloons. I'm not entirely sure I like this one as much as the first - I think the block of colour in one corner looks a bit silly!!
I'd like to enter this card in the DYSU landscape challenge this week.
Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see all the gorgeous DT cards.
I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you. I am spending tomorrow in a field with 550 Brownies celebrating the Olympics! As you can imagine I am praying that it doesn't decide to rain!! Please can you keep your fingers crossed for me!!
Thanks for popping by today,
