Happy Sunday I hope you are enjoying the extended weekend, those of you who get an extended weekend. We are setting off to Amsterdam today for a few days. This means that I will be quiet on the blog and on Facebook. I feel like I need a bit of a rest.
This is my Design Team card for the Scribble and Scrap Challenge Blog. Today the winners are announced for the last challenge and the new challenge starts the theme is always "Anything Goes". There is a prize on offer so there are lots of good reasons to join in with the challenge.
I made this card for a special friend's 50th Birthday she is a big Sue Wilson fan. She has had her birthday now so it is safe to share her card. Her family arranged a surprise tea-party at their house for all her friends it was brilliant. I even drank Earl Grey Tea and I liked it.
This card was inspired by one I saw on Sue Wilson's blog. I liked the effect but I had to think which of my dies could I use to make the design work. I do have quite a few Sue Wilson dies but nowhere near a full set. The black mat at the back was covered with a double sided sticky sheet and this was covered with CS Glitter Jewels Midnight Snow. I used a very strong glue to hold down the white mat.
Most of the dies I used are Sue Wilson dies only the flowers were made with Spellbinder dies.
I was very pleased with how this card turned out. As it has flowers on it I made a box for it otherwise the flowers would have been squashed.
I would like to enter this for the Crafting Musketeer's Challenge - Use a die cut as I have used so many. I also used some of my Snippets to make the flowers, the ivy and the banner I would like to enter Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 178. I have spotted the challenge at the All Sorts Challenge blog it is their 6th Birthday that is the theme so I thought I would enter.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the week. I am planning on taking lots of photos on our trip I might share some of them here.
