Weekend Cards



Here are 2 cards I made this weekend:

 This card was made using Prima Moulin Rouge papers, Cousins Midnight Garden Lace, the sentiment is one of Creative Expressions "Dreamy Sentiments" and 2 of my own Dragonfly snippets. 
It should be ok for the Shabby Tea Rooms challenge No 73 Mix and Match - Use 3 patterned papers (I have used 4)


Thought I might do a bit of recycling with this card...the butterfly background was cut from the packaging of a Craft Concepts embossing folder and the flower is made from a scrap of fabric stamped with Hero Arts Dot Flower stamp.  The butterfly is a Sizzix die and the embroidery thread is DMC from my stash.
Entering this card in the following challenges:
The Stampman "Stitching" (the flower is edged with running stitch and I have added some French Knots for definition)
Delightful Challenges "Stitching"
Happy crafting folks and dont forget my Blog Candy...1 week left!

  1. Lovely cards Geradline, the first one has to be my favourite, it is lush, gorgeous colour combo and beautiful dragonflies. Have kept odds and ends for recycling but tend to put them away in a cupboard and forget about them lol. Carolxx
