PTW 'Occasion-ally' Challenge


Hope everyone's alright? Quick post today for the latest challenge over at Papertake Weekly and this week it's 'Occasion-ally' and here is the card I've made:

I used a set of spool stamps from Prima to make a patterned background, I don't actually know the name of the set because it doesn't say it anywhere! I stamped them in Memento Cocoa ink onto the plain blue paper from Lili of the Valley's Bear Necessities pad. I cut the dress form out with the La-La Land Dress Form die and added 'wings' to it using the little flourish dies in the Joy! Crafts Oval die set which I also used to make the frame behind. The blue papers are the same papers from the Bear Necessities pad just left plain.
I used Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and Small for the layering on the sentiment which is from Set 18 Greetings Postmarks from Lili of the Valley. The flowers are Marianne Chinese Rolled Roses.

I did plan on this card being quite simple to start with but it was a bit too fussy to be simple and not quite fussy enough to be fussy! I think it might be a little too fussy now but I do still quite like it.

Anywho, hope you like it.

Quilt update, my Mum gave Laura and Harvey his quilt the other day and he loved it! Laura said he couldn't stop staring at it! Here he is all bundled up, isn't he gorgeous?

Hope you're having a nice weekend?
