You'd think with not having had much tome for crafting over the past few weeks I'd be bursting withb ideas but whenit came to it I couldn't get going. I found this magnolia image half coloured and for some reason thought about my mum. Mum loves autumn and all the fab colours autumn brings and she loves pottering in the garden so thats what I decided to theme my card on.
I started to look through my little note book for a sketch and found this one thaat was for Friday sketches though the challenge deadline is well gone , but I thought the layout was quite nice so decided to use it.
Its been a while since I've made a gate fold card and I'm sure I read a challenge for a fancy fold card, I know its not really that fancy but I did intend ll my card layers interlocking which if I'd manageed to ake it work it would have been really fancy but I didn't quite pull that off without damaging the corners and edges so now it's just a gate fold card.
There are quite a couple of challenges for using ribbons, flowers , buttons and bows around so I think I will enter my card for those . The first is Totally Papercrafts #3 who want buttons and bows. I have 3 little bows on my card and 2 buttons, I cut the shanks off the heart and the watering can, oops 3 the bumble bee is a button too, so thats 3 of each, hope thats enough.
Magnolia down under have a buttons bows and flowers challenge and as I also have 3 flowers on my card along with my buttons and bows I can enter their challenge too.
Creative inspirations have a challenge to use left over scraps and all the bits of card and paper are from my scraps folder, there is even an old envelop in there somewhere, so I guess I can enter their challenge, I seem to be on a roll.
