So I have had a busy couple of weeks as my lovely sister-in-law has been visiting from Hong Kong with my gorgeous niece and nephew and my husband and I have been trying to spend as much time with them as possible. This has left very little spare time to create or keep in touch with blogland. I was so happy to see this morning that I had won the last challenge over at Time Out Challenges with this card. This has inspired me today to make three cards, two of which will follow in later posts but first I must show you my entry for the Muse Challenge this week as the link up closes shortly:
The gorgeous inspiration at Muse was provided by Marion Vagg. This is such a beautiful design – I love the bold lines of the chevrons mixed with the soft colours and the delicate butterfly:
I came up with an idea straight away but this morphed several times before I came to create it and then several times more as I was making it as I think I had overstretched my ability (I have filled up a rubbish bin with failed attempts!).
For the finished card I used my Silhouette to cut out a mat with a butterfly cut out and a series of chevrons. I then glued the chevrons to a piece of scrap white card and popped the cut out up above this with foam dots after white embossing the sentiment.
Off to link this now, please leave a comment and let me know what you think, Cx
