So Grateful...

I am soooo ready for bed. This card, to be honest, was a marathon for me LOL! You may look at it and think 'What is she talking about?' but with my limited patience, I really had to use all my concentration for this one. I'm also sure that I watch a whole movie at the same time.... perhaps I shouldn't have lol.

Now, where to start?

First of all I followed the colours provided by Simply Stampin Colour Challenge. Then the Mojo Monday sketch was posted so I decided to put them together. Why do I do this to myself after 9pm at night? I really need my beauty sleep, but I'm sure noone in craft land cares ;)

Here is my card and then I will break it down a little..

This is the colour inspiration provided by Simply Stampin'

This is the sketch from Mojo Monday

I have used Very Vanilla cardstock for the card. Embossed the Soft Suede with the Lattice folder and the Crumb Cake with the Swiss Dots folder. I had to hand cut the circles (yes, I know I have to buy some circle dies) and the sentiment was stamped with Rose Red (stamp from the Apothecary Set). I stamped my Triple Treat flower three times - twice with Rose Red and once with Crumb Cake. I used the co-ordinating punches to layer the flower. The smaller circle has been embossed again with my Lattice folder.

I struggled with the colours as I have never used most of these before. Once it all started to come together, I really liked the combination.

Thanks for looking xx

Also, to all my blog friends. I have been a bit slack with visiting you all. I promise I will pop over in the next couple of days to have a look at your awesome creations.


  1. Love your card. Wower, I love how you used different colors for your card. I am going to put up mines soon.

  4. Hi Kylie - really lovely card - well worth staying up for :o) I do that to myself a lot too. Isn't it a wonderful addiction to have??

  5. These colors, the embossing and that pretty flower all came together beautifully! I know what you mean about feeling like you've run a marathon by the time you finish a card. Then the next card will go together in a few minutes. I hope!

  6. Wow this is a great card Kylie. Gorgeous mix of colours, think I might have to play with this challenge myself.

  7. Ah the marathon - no pain, no gain you see. What a beautiful card, totally worth all the effort. And I know exactly what you mean about the addiction. Mine's new, but obsessive!
