A Technique and a Colour Challenge

I'm so excited to have found some mojo AND time to stamp today! Wow, life can be so hectic at times! Yesterday I fully intended to make a card using Holly's TLC273 "You've been Framed" which was to create a card using a frame. However, I had to take Sarah shopping for wedding shoes (don't ask!). Needless to say, we didn't get home until later than I expected and eventually the day ran away with me!

Anyway, luckily this morning, Betty had posted a Colour Challenge using our current In Colours, Rich Razzleberry, Dusty Durango and a colour which will be carried over into our new Subtles collection, So Saffron. So I grabbed the bull by the horns and threw a card together!

I pulled out my Oval Scallop Die, made the frame with Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, punched out some flowers using the new trio punch set in the Summer Mini Catalogue, curled them up and glued them around the frame, then just very simply stamped the flowers from Watercolour Trio in the colour challenge colours. A little butterfly at the top popped onto dimensionals, and hey presto!

See you in 3 weeks, Kate!

This is so pretty Emma! The detail of the little flowers around the frame is just delightful.
