Good afternoon folks. Today is the March House of Cards CAS/Classic challenge, which is add a button (or 20 if you like lol!). Click here to have a peek and hopefully you will have a go.
Also, happy St Patrick's Day to anyone who is celebrating.
Been a busy few days with work, MOT and service on Shaun (my car . . . . . passed thankfully) and sorting a leaking inlet hose on the washer dryer . . . . . Thank heavens for next door being a plumber. Would have done it myself (I did plumb our dishwasher in by myself) but our kitchen stopcock would not budge, even with Mr D's brute strength so we had to call the cavalry. Hoping this lovely warm weather lasts to dry out where its leaked.
Now, today's card is a A5 cream card base, layered in black (before I thought about the felt tip trick) and fuchsia pink PMD card.
I then took a layer in cream card and cut each edge with my Super Striplet, using only half the width of the die.
I topped it of with some SB Delicate Asters in cream, tipped with pink ink and their leaves inked with Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters.
Now, you all know I'm not a button or twine kinda gal so I had to go out and buy buttons. These caught my eye as they were flower shaped and had the diamante centre (brings out the magpie in me)
Just to show you they are buttons rather than embellishments, this is one on my pokey tool.
I popped the buttons onto the centres of my asters and was happy with the effect.
To finish off, I added the sentiment on one of the SB Fancy Framed Tags One and a bit of bling underneath.
Hope you feel inspired to enter the challenge.
I'm feeling a bit better but still tempted by the Dyson lol! Wasn't massively impressed with these new F1 cars. They sound like souped up lawnmowers (with a similar reliability factor by the look of them) Yes Jackie, does make for an interesting season.
Have a great week folks and be good.
