Hello Strangers!!

Sorry I haven't blogged much this week, but I was unwell last week and then everybody else decided to be unwell this week( aaaaaarrrrgghh!). I think I've caught up on washing now so I can relax a bit and get some crafting done!
This card is for 2 challenges this week( and apologies to the other challenges I usually join but have missed, I'll be back next week).
The 1st is for Flutterby Wednesday#107 set by Debby, who wants us to keep it clean and simple. Now anyone who knows me will appreciate what a struggle this is for me haha! but I've tried honest! No matting n layering, no bling, no ribbons, no overstamping.... Just the image printed straight onto the base card and coloured(subtley I think). A bit of inking round the edges and I have stamped and cut out the 2 flowers in the corner for a little dimension.
That brings me to the 2nd challenge, which is for Cute Card Thursday #110 Make your own eg. embellishment, backing papers whatever, as long as something on your card you made yourself. Hence the 2 flowers, which I have stamped onto co-ordinating paper and cut out. Technichally I suppose I made my own image as it is a combnation of 2 different designers. The swirl is from Airfactory and the Butterfly is from Tiffany's Garden both acquired through the Freebie Digi stamp site.
And a quick reminder that this Sunday is the launch of Cowgirl Up's new challenge blog, so drop by and leave some love!
Love as always Gina x x x

  3. Hi Gina this may be simple and clean but it is still a beautiful card full of elegance and class I know it is hard not to embellish much but you have cracked it with this one great work.
