In Colours!

Good Morning all!

What miserable weather we've woken up to this morning, kind of makes me glad I'm working today! Mrs Mojo has reappeared (for a brief period) so I have a card to share with you today. Now I haven't really used this years 'In Colours' from SU very much, so I challenged myself to make a card using these and some of my new stash from my last craft splurge!

Here's the final result...


A more detailed shot of the 3D flower and the embossing....


and of course the decorated inside....


Materials

CS: SU Crumb Cake, Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Poppy Parade and Whisper White

Papers: Designer Series Paper In Colour (Level 1 hostess gift)

Stamps: SU Ocasional Greetings, Whimsical Words (retired), So Happy For You (Sale-a-bration)

Tools: SU Square lattice, Perfect Polka Dots and Vintage Wallpaper embossing folders, Fun Flowers Die, Sponges for distressing

Misc: SU Markers, Adhesive Pearls


I really enjoyed making this card and I love the bright colours and all the texture created by the embossing folders!

Well I suppose I had better get off the computer and go and get ready for work. I am only working today though as I am going to the Stitch and Creative Craft show tomorrow with my mum at Doncaster Racecourse. Not that I really should be spending anything! I have a huge mountain of stash that I should use first. I don't know about you, but I think there is something exciting about getting new stash to coo over!!

Have a great weekend, whatever you're all up to and thanks for stopping by today!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
