Oh dear you can tell I'm off work - 2 posts in 1 day! Never mind back to the grindstone on Monday so back to normal then (well as normal as normal gets).
Whilst drinking coffee and blog hopping this afternoon I came across a challenge site called 'Friday Mashup' which each week sets a combination of two challenges. You can either mix the two or just use one and this week is the sketch above and, to 'mash it up', also go Vintage or Shabby Chic. As I am definitely much more Vintage than Shabby Chic (me that is, not my style of creating) I chose to go with that. I started by embossing a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the rectangle from the Designer Frames Embossing set and cut a rectangle of Crumb Cake DSP to go in the centre onto which I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip. I inked all around the edge of the cardstock with Crumb Cake ink before fixing to a card blank made from Naturals Ivory cardstock which I also inked around. The two 'photo corners' were made with my square punches from Chocolate chip cardstock and glued in place. I cut the flowers from my new Blossom Party die using more DSP to match the central panel and used the reverse pattern for the centre circle. The petals were curled a little before fixing in place.Do come back tomorrow when, despite still having a hundred and one things I need to do before going back to work, I'm sure I will find time for a LIM card!
