I received a "Thank You" gift from Swap Sisters for my stint as Guest Designer for the month of March, which was an experience that I relished and thoroughly enjoyed ... to my surprise and delight, I received this in the post:
So a great big huuuge "Thank You" to Swap Sisters, Sue and the Design Team.
Now, continuing on there is a Colour Challenge at Swap Sisters, your not gonna believe these colours:
With these bright colours .... I felt that that only things that look great in brights are .... Flower's, but beware, this is bright .... A Flower Pot Card ... my first attempt and happy to say, not too difficult at all, just fiddly ....
I made up the colours in Cardstock (but used YoYo Yellow instead of Summer Sun) and as I did not have the inks to match I used the next closest match - Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Regal Rose.
All the flowers were cut out with the Circle Scallop Punch and Boho Blossoms Punch, and the faux buttons were made with the 1/2" circle punch (5 circles glued together and topped with Crystal Effects), and sponged edges.
Oh by the way, if you would like to have a go at the Flower Pot card ..... great for Mothers Day, I got this tutorial from Stephanie Luman's Blog.
