Playtime


It's mid month challenge time at Penny Black and More and that means it's time for an inspirational card. The challenge theme is "Feature a Creature" and the team have made some fantastic inspirational pieces of work to share with you. There is still plenty of time to enter the challenge and there are several prizes to be won. Pop over to the blog for the rules and details using the link above.

I must admit I kind of threw this card together as I have not been well for a while.  I basically grabbed what I could find on my desk and managed to get my card together by the skin of my teeth for this post.
I have used lots of snippets which I pulled from a box of left over bits I keep and hardly ever use. The die cut had a bent corner so I hid that under the flowers. The gro grain ribbon was tiny but I managed to cut into two pieces hiding the join under the image. I was feeling a bit low and not concentrating and the glue came through the first layer of lace. I fudged over that by adding another scrap of net on top. A skinny piece of cream lace had the life stretched out of it so it just about stretched the width of the card and I tiny scrap of a flower was added to a crumpled corner on my image.
I realized afterwards It would have probably been quicker to start a fresh card but by this time I was loosing the will to live and it just had to do.

So pretty with all the Spring blossoms Shirley and that's a lovely touch across the bottom with the tulle frill.
