Five Challenges In One Again!


Friday Sketchers (38) - Sketch
Creative Inspirations (2) - Thrifty (Nothing New)
Secret Crafter (18) - Recycling
Charisma Cardz (5) - 3/2/1 (3 papers/2 flowers/ 1 ribbon)
A Spoonful Of Sugar (38) - Doodle Doo

I loved making this card as I am a great believer in recycling what I can. I started by covering the card with a spotty paper. The green rectangle is a piece of handmade paper glued to a scrap of card of the same colour as it didn't show up very well. I then added the border and the doodling. I then cuttlebugged a piece of foil and layered that on top following the lovely sketch from Friday Sketchers. I cut out the main flower and added it by using D/S tape in the centre and putting foam pads under each petal to raise them up. I punched out the smaller flower from scraps and added a gem. The greeting was cut out and placed either end of the design and a bow added.
