Festival tomboy

I have had a few requests from ladies at work the past couple of months to make cards for them. A couple of them have even been to celebrate other ladies at work, like this one. They were quite specific that it was certainly not to be very girly. Dark colours were to prefer and not a lot of embellishments.

I chose one of the pre-coloured images I have laying about and showed it to a couple of co-workers and when they agreed it would work well, I carried on and built the card around it. The image is purchased at The Hobby House, as are the pearls and the ribbon. The purple and green paper is from Paper Cellar, and I don’t remember where the other is from. All the flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and the numbers have been made with an alphabet die set by QuicKutz.




Blue. I love blue! It is definitely time for a blue card! It’s been too long since I posted one now; I will make it up by posting several the next two weeks!

I have used paper from Bildmålarna and a pre-coloured topper from The Hobby House using a darling Sylvia Zet image. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branches are made with a Martha Stewart puncher. The little pearls are also purchased at The Hobby House, whereas the sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.
