Fabulous Friday - Lot's of Papers :-)

Hello out there my blogging buddies.  How has your week been?

I am trying to get my crafting head back on, but in order to do that I have decided to have a major sort out in my craft room.  That means binning, purging and re-organising :-)

I am giving myself two weeks to get it all done!  We have a garage sale weekend coming up, so we are having a good sort out of the girls games cupboards and their bedrooms too :-)  Guess we are all in on it :-)

Anyways, Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes - so why not come along and enter x

For my little bit of Friday inspiration I have used the classic Rose Budd Collection for all the papers.


I have used the Mojo Monday sketch to create my layers, but I have added an oval using the beautiful Elegant Nesting Dies (the larger of the set of 3) for my sentiment panel to sit on.


For the inside I have used the same papers as the front and then added a message panel using the middle size of the Nesting Dies.


The flowers are made using the wonderful Flowers 2 Die, inking the edges and adding some pearl dots to the centres.


For the leafy elements I have used the Flower Flourish Die and the Elegant Flourish Die, again a little ink was added to the edges.


I love making up these little flowers.  I also placed some foam tape under the oval sections to add some more depth to the card.

I am entering this in the following challenges.

Fabulous Friday - Lot's of Dies

Happy Friday everyone.

The weather here is so interchangeable at the moment, raining one minute, sunny the next, we even had snow (yep I said snow!!!) earlier in the week - thank goodness it didn't come to anything though.

Anyway, onto today's post.  Polkadoodles challenges are now always Anything Goes - so why not come along and enter.

For my card today, I have used the wonderful Lavender Tea collection for my papers.  I love the subtle colour palette in this collection.


For the centre panels, I have used the beautiful Elegant Nesting Dies - it comes in a set of 3 and I love the edging of these.


For the inside, I used the same papers as the front and added a little stamping on the centre panel.

For the flowers and leaves elements, I have used several Polkadoodles Dies - for the flowers the the Flowers 2 Die was used.  The leafy elements were added using the Elegant Flourish Die and Flower Flourish Die.


All the layers, flowers etc have been inked and the centre panels raised using foam tape.  I added some pearl dots to the centre of the flowers.  A little more stamping to the centre panel for my sentiment.


I am entering this card in the following challenges.
