In the Red!
So I found two red themed challenges today - quite apt given the state of my bank account! I'm starting to struggle financially, oh the joys of being a single mum and hence the new "classes" button on my blog. I'll also be selling off some of my huge stash haul, just as soon as I photograph and price it but onto today's card.
The Recipe - layered nestabilities circles, Basic Grey Boxer paper, art deco multi punch, embossed flowers, ribbon rose buds, sizzix ticket,gold charm, red and brown cardstock, heart pin, fabric yo-yo.
Excuse me if it looks a bit a wonky but I had no paper trimmer, so I cut the background squares freehand and then layered the nestie shapes on top. On the top layer I glued a green fabric yo-yo (a gathered circle of fabric) - I find flowers glue to it easily and have more dimension than when glued to the card. I also had no red flowers or red roses, so I simply coloured white flowers and blue rosebuds with my poppy promarker.
So the ABC challenge is R is for Red and then the papercutz challenge is a rather odd one I think! Make a Spring card using red, green, brown and white only.
