Last WOW card!

Hi LIMettes!
What happened to Blogger this morning? I tried to upload a card I made before I went out but it wouldn't let me sign in saying that it was unavailable! Anyway, here is the card, now that I'm back......

I really liked seeing all the rolled roses in the Less Is More - White On White challenge this week so I decided to do some too! I don't have the wonderful dies for this so all I did was punch out a 1 and half inch circle and trimmed it with some scalloped scissors that were free with a magazine some time ago. I then cut a spiral into the circle using the same scissors, then pinch the thin end in my tweezers and rolled it around them. I secured the rolled rose to it's base with some silicone glue. After I had made 3, I sprayed them with spray mount and dusted with Butterfly Trails glitter. The leaves are a woodware punch, the swirl is Sizzix, the butterfly is Marianne Creatables and the frame is a Nestie Label, all made with and mounted onto shimmer white card and paper.

Hope you like it! :)

I now am off to finish all the ironing for the childrens clothes sale next Saturday.......And trust me, it really is a mountain of ironing! How did a 3yr old get so many clothes already!

  11. Hi Lizzy, just having a wander thru your blog - you'll probably see a few comments from me! Love this card, it's so elegant. But it was the comment about childrens clothes that got me, I can so relate. I sell at a twice yearly NCT nearly new sale and I've always got piles of clothes to go too! My girl is nearly 4 now and starting school in Sept (gulp!) hopefully it will calm down then as she will be in school uniform. Sarah


Thank you so much for visiting. Please leave a comment so I know you've been...all comments are read and appreciated! Lizy x
