Love You. . .

Hiya folks!

Just as I thought winter was about done with us - it came back again! Woke up to find a couple of centimetres lying about. Nothing to speak of, but nature is just reminding us that it isn't done yet.

My card today is full of the joys of Spring though. I came across a new challenge site, so thought I'd give it a go. It is the Fred She Said Challenge Blog which has it's first challenge up now, and the chance of winning a freebie on 1st Feb - so get in and become a follower quick!!

For the layout of this card, I followed the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp - hope I'm in time for this one!


At Polka Doodles this week, they want to see Valentine's, but in a non-traditional way or colour scheme. Well, no hearts here, and no red or pink either!!


For the Fred She Said challenge, they want us to design a project that is inspired by their blog banner, which by the way is really scrummy. Love those purples! So I went trawling through their designs yesterday and bought a set that I have used here for this card. I also downloaded a couple of their freebies too and added a yellow flower to my design here.


I cut out loads of flowers and a few leaves, and made them 3 dimensional by curling the petals up. I have added some ink to the yellow ones, and some stickles here and there for some bling. The ribbon is an organza one from my stash.

Right, I'd better get this one entered before the sketch challenge closes!!

PS - don't forget our first blog hop tomorrow at Winter Wonderland!! See you there (I hope)!!
