This creation is for 3 challenges, can you believe. Firstly ABC challenge which is 'v for violet', Papertake Weekly which is 'spots' and lastly Cute card Thursday which is 'use anything new that you had for christmas'.
At the moment I've been making several 5 inch square cards but out of A4 size card stock I have a sliver of about 3 inches left over so I came up with this. Once you fold this section in half it makes a small DL size base roughly of 3 inch x 5.7 inch.
The violet papers are from the HOTP Vintage 8 x 8 papers and they also have spots and my newest present is my new computerised sewing machine which I have to confess was opened before xmas and had to have a go with it so there are some cards before this post with machine stitching on them, I'm hoping it still counts towards the challenge. I still have my family paying for it as it cost so much! I've aligned everything to the right, violet ribbon is from stash,crotchet flower I've made and added a flat gem to it, a forever friends bear image perfect for this size card, w/coloured with pencils, balloon with copics violet V09, glam dust added and flat gem in corner, sentiment 'for you' from cheap Tesco's stamp aligned to the left and rounded off with decor scissors. Hope you like this new type of card, and thanks for looking.
