Saturday 8 February 2014


Geez, where does the time go?! I can't believe we are already into February! We have been so busy during school holidays (it is hard work keeping 3 little girls amused!!), but thankfully school is back now, and we have settled into a nice routine, which is about to be turned upside down again when uni starts in a week!

Today's card is for my cousin who is getting married next week. I knew what I wanted to make, I just couldn't get my vision on to the card. Thankfully, I found some challenge inspiration to help get the ball rolling ;)

As usual, there is great sketch inspiration over at The Sketchy Challenges, I have flipped it on it's side, and thanks to a gorgeous Sweet Pea sentiment, I was able to make it work! It's also my first time playing over at Live & Love Crafts, and a perfect chance to play with my new lace (I have inked it with DI Antique Linen). I also decided to throw my hat in the ring over at Cute Card Thursday's 'lots of love' challenge, I think my sentiment says it all really!

I was a little bit cross about how my stamped image showed up on the card. I wanted to keep it faded for a shabby chic look, but in the light, it didn't quite turn out that well. IRL, it looks great!

Supplies used are:

Bazzil, Stampin'  Up! cardstock
Graphic 45 - Le Romantique papers
Stampin'  Up! Early Espresso, and Tim Holtz DI Antique Linen
Flourishes stamp set, Sweet Pea sentiment
Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Classic Ovals
Stampin'  Up! Scalloped edge punch
