Elise ~ Shades of Violet

Good afternoon

Hope you are all well and having a good week so far.  Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post ... it does feel very strange not having any DT work but  I do feel it was the right decision.  

Over the weekend I had a look through my stamps and found sweet Elise by Sugar Nellie so decided to make a card for The Sugar Bowl challenge where there is a fab sketch and the optional theme of Shades of Violet.  Hope the Sweeties don't mind too much but I have tweaked the sketch very slightly because I don't really like my images to be at an angle!  I think they look great on other people's cards just not my own ... I have a similar issue with buttons lol!

* Card Recipe *

Image ~ Elise
Papers ~ Prima 'Sweet Fairy' and 'Meadow Lark'
Sentiment ~ Little Claire die cut
Swirl ~ Joy Crafts
Flowers, Leaves & Gems ~ Stash

* Challenges * 


The Sugar Bowl ~ Sketch & Theme
Bunny Zoe's ~ Girls
CAGI ~ Colour challenge
Crafty Calendar ~ Flowers in Bloom (optional swirls)

That's all from me ... MIL wants a birthday card for her friend for tomorrow.  Luckily I have something suitable in my box so now quickly going to do an insert.

Hope you have a lovely evening and i'll catch up with you all again soon.

Beautiful card Lisa. I am just like you, I have to have everything straight and in line. I try to do angles but it never looks right!

Hi Lisa. I meant to comment on your post the other day. I completely understand where you are coming from with regard to DT work. Its fun to do but it can completely take over and takes the fun out of our wonderful hobby. I am so glad you feel you made the right decision and I am glad that you are staying in blog land to continue to show us your wonderful creations!

Oh Lisa, you do make me smile re images at an angle. I challenge you to make a card that has distressed edges, image at an angle, doodling and buttons! No, that's not your style but this card is and how gorgeous it is too. Love tha sentiment and the flower arrangement with the gorgeous image. Such pretty colours too.
