Missed the boat...


Hope you all had a nice weekend..I had a very relaxed one. I made lots of fun things. Including the beautiful card you see in the main photo for The Shabby Tea Room challenge this week..

Challenge #199 - Colour Challenge
It was a colour challenge, using black, kraft, cream/white.

I didn't read the details properly and my card had to be posted before the end of the day Sunday, so I missed that deadline. But because my card is so gorgeous, I thought I'd post it anyway.

I am super pleased with my card, the idea popped in to my head on Saturday night and once I had finished making Hubby's pig apron (more about that later in the week), I got cracking.

I broke out some new and some old stash items for this card and it was fun rooting around the craft room looking for all the things I wanted....I happened upon some items I'd forgotten about :) I also broke out the Big Shot because whilst I love the new Silhouette, some things just need to be done by hand!

So my ingredients are -
Kraft Graph Paper - Recollections by Michaels (a gift from JT)
Doily - eBay
White Paper Roses - The Range
Tag Die - Spellbinders (sentiment printed on white card stock)
Butterfly Dies - xCut
Bling - AC Moore
Black and white card stock - from my stash

I stumbled across the Shabby Tea Rooms blog when I was reviewing some of the entries for MAWTT this week and I am so glad that I did..I'll be back again..but on time next time!

  1. Love the color combo and the use of a doily there - you should use them more they look great with the butterflies!
