Thank You in Aqua

A simple but pretty little thank you card that I made for the lady that made Fliss's birthday cake. I did post it off on time but forgot to show you here.

I made the card from a scrap of stamping that I was practicing on ages ago with Giga Guidelines using spring rain, aqua mist and enchanted evening. I was playing with with I thought were manly colours but I got that all wrong!

By the way - I did trim that ribbon tail before I sent it off - nothing like a photo to show up your errors!

Four of a Kind

I was a very lucky girl when the lovely Taheerah let me buy one of her Papertrey CHA sets that were exclusive to the show called Four of a Kind. I love how versatile it is with 4 different flowers. I whistled off a few like the one above but forgot to photograph them.

The one above is a one layer card stamped in Chartreuse and Raspberry Fizz. The one below is all in Plum Pudding and Chartreuse again - love the new inks even if they do stamp a bit unevenly!

I used Plum Pudding DP (Dots and Squares) from Papetrey with a little strip of old Anna Griffin DP. I haven't decided on a sentiment yet - if I use one at all as in life I think this card looks a lot prettier that the photo! The roses are popped up on dimentionals to give it a bit of a lift.
The challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey this week is to make a square card and so I think this fits the bill!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have had a grand weekend!

Asters for September

Here is the page for September - pretty Asters. I always remember my Dad growing Asters in many colours. I have used a bit of poetic license here with berry sorbet colours!

Here is a little close up of the colouring.

I used Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush card and paper for this month
