I've made this card for three challenges:
- Waltzingmouse Blog Party - WMSBP02-13 where the theme is doilies
- Play Date Cafe Challenges - PDCC169
- Freshly Made Sketches - FMS73
I really like the colours in this week's Play Date challenge, but I have to admit that I've struggled a bit with them - the colours in my card are brighter tones than on the graphic, but I think they work. This is a bit out of my comfort zone as I don't often use just design papers. But these papers from Kaisercraft are so pretty that I had to try. I cut a sheet to cover the front of a square card. I got the doilies from my local supermarket last year - pretty. For the horizontal panel I cut a piece of Marina Mist DP. I cut the banner tag from white lustre card and stamped a simple birthday greeting in pink. The green doily comes from the coordinating Kaisercraft set.
For the inside I decided to use another sheet of paper from the pack. I cut it to fit the card - making sure that I kept the birdcage image in the top corner. I stamped a couple of doilies in the opposite corner and left a space for the greeting. It is actually a very clean and simple card!
That's all for now. Kathryn and I are off to see Warm Bodies - an unusual twist on a romance - a zombie and human!! It's had good reviews. I'll report back! See you soon.
