Petal Lu DT post - Yellow

Hi everyone,

I've been waiting for what seems like ages to do this post .... my very first post as part of the Petal Lu DT!!!!

This month our theme is Yellow .... so that means you must use some yellow flowers on your project (you can use other coloured flowers too) ... easy peasy right!

So here is my card ... I used a super cute image from Tiddly Inks .. this is Molly's cup of Love

Here is a close up of the beautiful flowers .... There is a fantastic discount on the mixed yellow pack here for the duration of Aprils challenge!

I also sneaked in some pretty blue flowers too :)

Papers are from a very old prima pad, gorgeous spring summer colours.

I matted with lots of Kraft and finished with a sentiment and some fussy cut butterflies.

Here are some handy links:

A new facebook page  (to show off those designs using Petal Lu Blooms, receive discounts and other promotional goodies, exclusive to the page)

I hope you like it,  I would love you to pop over and join our challenge!

Hugs xx Cara xx

School's out for Summer ....I wish!

Hello again lovelies

Its Team B's turn to showcase our makes for this weeks challenge at the Colour Crazy Challenge and we are sponsored by Pickled Potpourri.

They have given me such a fun image to work with this week called Sweet Summer.

With such a bold image I chose to colour it in bright primary colours using my Prisma Pencils, I also added glossy accents to the sunshine and beach ball.  I love how the image looks like an old style polaroid picture.

I teamed the image with some gorgeous papers by My Minds Eye, more oldies from my paper mountain ... I will work through them all some day.  I added the sentiment using my Dymo machine and then some simple faux stitching.

And a final pic to show you the gloss on the beach ball and sunshine!

I hope you like it!
