Good morning Duckadees and anyone who is passing through. Hope life is treating you kindly.
Today is my first DT post for House of Cards and I still have to pinch myself that they asked lil' ol' me to join them.
The picture is a little dark to get the contrast so that you can see the embossing at the bottom.
Today is the start of the challenge for CAS and Classic and Elegant. using this sketch as your inspiration. . . . . .
I hope that you can pop along to HOC and join in the challenge.
Now, today's card is my take on the sketch.
I started with a cream A5 card base. This I topped with a slightly smaller layer in sky blue card that I had pierced around the edge.
For the top two thirds, I cut the chevron paper from the First Edition Neroli pad (told ya I love it) and for the bottom third, I cut a piece of cream card to fit, then embossed vertical lines on it, using my Hougie. I put them together and covered the join with cream satin ribbon, then topped this with sky blue organza ribbon and taped it at the back.
This was then stuck flat to the base card.
The cream frame was cut using SB Decorative Labels 28 and the butterfly is from SB Les Papilions 2. The oval was cut from sky blue card using SB Large Classic Ovals. I then ran the oval through the GC in the Cuttlebug Kassies Brocade embossing folder.
The sentiment is stamped onto the cut centre of one of the SB Fancy Framed Tags 1 dies and this was popped onto an embossed fork cut piece.
Sky blue organza bow and blue bling added and voila. . . . . . fini !
I really hope you have time to have a go at the challenge and good luck if you do. I also hope that you like my interpretation of the sketch. . . . .Jackie, you were "expecting great things" (no pressure there then hahaha) so I would be happy to have achieved "good".
Hazel, I'm guessing the dog tucked a napkin in its collar and sat poised with a knife and fork when it clapped eyes on the kitten. Hope you have managed to keep them separate.
Patricia, I have heard that birds like cheese but have never tried it. Raisins eh? must try that too. I whistle and Mr B comes along. He then sings and Mrs B arrives.
If we are late, he sits on the extension roof so we see him when we open the bedroom curtains. . . . . its almost like stalking!
I will pop a pic of one of the babies on the next post. We called it "Fat Bird" as it was cheeky and would come in the kitchen and feed from my hand, so it got more grub and was fatter than the others lol !.
Anyhoo, must waddle off. Have a great day and be good.
