Here is my card for this week:-
And here are the colours for you to see:-
I started out with some Very Vanilla as my base and to that added some Very Vanilla DSP from my Candy Lane stash and then sponged the edges with some Choc Chip to soften it up a wee bit. I stamped the flower from my Razzle Dazzle set on to some Choc Chip card and then used my Apron Lace punch to punch some So Saffron to make the centre piece. The Butterflies are stamped in Cameo Coral and I've sponged the edges again with some Choc Chip and added a silver brad which has been laiden with a Glue Dot and then "plonked" as the lovely Sarah once described it (*waving Sair*)... still love that term "Plonked".. oops sorry there I go digressing!!!.. ok so where was I... oh yes... the brad... it's been "plonked" into some Dazzling Diamonds. I decided it was also high time I used some of my Hodgepodge (which has since been retired), instead of just looking at it in it's tin, so I stamped my sentiment from Short and Sweet in Choc Chip onto some Vanilla card, added some sponging and secured it with some brads, also from the hodgepodge tin.... WOW, I should probably sit down for a sec, Cameo Coral and two lots of hodgepodge on the one card!!!!! hahaha. Oh and I mustn't forget the ribbon. I also added some Very Vanilla ribbon across the centre for a little dimension and then tied a Choc Chip bow before attaching the Butterflies. Ooops and almost forgot to mention the little So Saffron centres for the flowers, just to make them POP a bit.
So there you go... I hope you like this one, I'm actually really happy with how it turned out. Be sure to pop on over to the other Inkspiration DT blogs for some amazing inspiration:-
