Inspired to try something new

Second post of the day... I have been busy making today :)

I received this card from some friends recently and loved it. I especially liked the use of an insert as part of the decoration - something new that I hadn't tried before.

I wanted to have a go at creating something similar, and here are my attempts (sorry for the crappy pics, I just can't seem to get it right this weekend!)

 I like the playful feel of this one.. It's bright and feels like spring is coming. I want to enter this one into the following challenges
Scrapbooker's Paradise - Buttons
The Stamp Man - new techniques

This one feels more like autumn to me... pretty and whimsical. I am entering it here
365 cards - Soothing challenge

They were really fun to make. I think I will be making more in different colours - I need a blue one for sure!


  1. Hi M

    A great take on the card you received from your friends.

    Love what you have done here.

    Have been looking at the previous posts I have missed . .. shame the CD cutting didn't work more successfully .. .. though I do like the bird you ended up with.

    Love Jules xx
