My Crafting Addiction made whole again...

Welcome to the newest challenge from

The Crafty Addicts 

It's a while since I wandered the fabulous place that is 

Blogland, and I couldn't think of a better way to get

It seems like forever since I made a greetings card, so I

decided to try and keep it simple to ease myself back in.

My version of C&S (clean n simple)

I started by just grabbing a random selection of bits
from my craft room...

I chose an image from the
and then used a 
to create a matching background paper.

Then it was just a matter of building a few sympathetic
layers with muted tones.

This card was for my 8 year old niece, who asked for watercolour
paints for her birthday (Auntie Gina always buys the proper stuff),
so the card is meant to mimic the soft effect you can get when using

Hope you enjoyed my little run through , and that it inspires you to
raid your stash and have some fun :D
