Crafty Cardmakers DT Card - WOYWW

Good Morning folks,

I am a little behind with getting this on.  This is my return effort for the Design Team over at Crafty Cardmakers  - Yes Im back on the Design Team again lol, I came off to get Craftymess Forum and Shop up and running.  The Challenge for this week is Floral, Set by Jack.

I used some ribbon that had been sitting around way too long, made some background papers with sticky fingers sprays, punched out two different size shapes, inked the edges with distress inks and attached some metal flower charms.  The mini tag is made in the same way with the ribbon.  I added some pearls to jazz it up a bit as the corners looked a bit empty.

I made this card on a C6 instead of my normal square so that it would fit the challenge over at Mixed Media whos challenge is to work outside your comfort zone, this is well out of mine lol

I have also entered it into Paper Cutz Challenge which is as you like it.

Over at Craftymess we have load of new groups, swaps and challenges happening so if you fancy any of these head on over, your be made very welcome

Emily has started January Stamper Challenge With some great prizes on offer

Carol has started a Altered pringle Lid group

Sandra has started Tag Book monthly Challenge

Kim has started an ATC Swap

Theres is a Stamped Image swap

We have a little Market Place to get rid of your old bits or bobs

Theres lots and lots going on, come on over and have some fun with us

And here is my desk, i took the photo for WOYWW The famous Stamping Ground but never got there yesterday, so Ill pop it in today and see if I can play catch up with them lol.  Your notice its much tidier than last week, but still lots of "bits" that dont really have a home. Just out of the piccie is my wonderful box of after eights, a girls gotta have some choccie to hand lol

Judie xx

There's always little bits of stuff on my desk too that I don't know where to put so I just keep pushing them around! Hope you didn't get too much snow? We might get and inch or two today and another 2 or 3 tomorrow night, we've really got off lightly so far this winter. Great card btw, love the colours and lo.

what a lovely card! I think the centers are inspired. Another After 8 fan - funnily enough, just having an argument with our visitor about the merits of peppermint over spearmint (yuk)

Have a great WOYWW.
