Well despite best intentions I didn't quite manage to create a separate card for this week's 52-card challenge using these colours as inspiration:
But I did use them as a springboard to my card for today's dare on the DCM blog which has been set by the very lovely Rein.
This week's focus is on flowers... but the flowers have to be the main event on your card.
I went for a full on floral background - any more flowers on this card and you'd need to stick it in the greenhouse:
Paper: Crate Paper
Other: satin ribbon, flower button, pearl, twine, sewing machine
I've loved the bold print of this paper ever since I got it - but it's one of those papers that just doesn't work so well on cards unless you chop it up small or use it to its full bold glory. I thought it was time to do just that! ;)
I had a bit of a job trying to get a small bow out of this lovely satin ribbon, so in the end I cheated a bit and didn't tie an actual bow just made a DIY one. I tied it on with twine and that little flower button keeps it all nicely held together, there was a dent in the button perfect for a teeny pearl and there you have it...
Have a lovely crafty weekend!
