It's been one of those weeks when I had no time and energy for crafting after work. So it's even better to wake up on a Saturday and start the day with stamps, inks and paper in the craftroom!
As I do every Saturday morning these days, I started by checking out the new challenge over at Less Is More. This week's theme is pastel colours.
I had a few more or less failed attempts at first before coming up with this card. It's slightly different from my usual style but I'm quite pleased with it even if I say so myself.
The flower stamp (from Ippity Stamps "Now and Always" set) is stamped 3 times on patterned papers (by Pink Petticoat, freebies from Quick Cards Made Easy) and cut out in sections and layered up with 3D foam.
Then I added a button in the centre (well, I thought I added it to the centre but looking at the photos it's quite off-centre!), and a leaf to the side (from the same Ippity stamp set).
I wrapped some twine around the card base, rounded the corners, and stamped a Hero Arts sentiment. And then took about 20 not that great photos... *sigh* It's another grey morning with no sign of the sun so the photos are what they are...
At least the evenings are getting lighter and Spring Equinox is fast approaching so there's hope of spring actually arriving! I'm going to be working on Easter cards for a commission this week so that should put me in the mood for spring. Might have to buy some Easter chocolate just to help matters, though... ;)
