Having Fun

Hello. Hope you have all had a wonderful day.

I decided to have a little play in my craft room last night and had some fun trying a different style to what I usually go for. I am actually pretty pleased with how this card turned out.


I combined a few challenges for my inspiration.

I picked the main colour from the current Shabby Tea Room Challenge - the actual colour of the cupcakes (before being iced). I also used the theme, 'What are you thankful for' - which is the love of my family; my husband. The challenge at City Crafter Challenge #31 is to use Little Children.


I am also entering it into Crafty Cardmakers - spotlight on dry embossing and Simon Says Stamp & Show - Whatever Makes you Happy.

Phew!

Thanks for stopping by.

Holy moly, I'm drooling over this one!! I love the way you have the color smooshed into your dry embossing - that never seems to work very well for me. That vintage image is WONDERFUL and the lace heart - definitely to die for!! This creation would definitely make ME happy!! So happy you could join in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show!
