"A Perfect Day" SophistiCat Challenge


Today, I made this pocket card and note card set for the challenge
over at SophistiCat Challenge Blog . The challenge this week is set by Lyn,
to "make something that can hold something" .
Your colours ,your way.

If you have not been to thier blog yet, you really should check it out.
Some very talented crafters over there :)

So onto my card now :)

A Perfect Day

I wasnt sure about useing these colours together .
So in that was a challenge for me . I had bought the
Laura Ashley Flocked papers awhile back and
thought they were really pretty ...and they have
sat and sat and sat in my desk lol .
Didnt have anything to use them on :(

This is one of the note cards . The image matches the
image on the front of the card.
I used Chalk inks to do the flower image .
And the same colour around the trim of the note card.
I tried to do a sentiment in the same colour as the flowers but it just didnt turn out right, it kept smearing . So I ended up useing black ink.

Inside of the card . I used the Martha Stewart border
punch again and inked it with the same
chalk ink as on the note cards. And added some little flower brads to
the sides to hold them together .

Used some lace to finish the card off .

Items used :
White and chocolate cardstock
Green paper by DCWV
Flocked paper by Laura Ashley
Laceand brads from stash

Papermania free Stamp :
I used Chalk Box inks on it .

Sentiment from same set .

Thanks for looking :)

Hello Cheryl.... this is really REALLY lovely, what a great gift for someone.
Thank you so much for joining in our challenge at S-CATS this week... especially as it was my challenge and i'm no cardmaker so choose to do something a little different.
I really hope you join us again soon.
hugs lynx
