Thought I'd have a go at something different!!!

Now I'm wishing I hadn't bothered!!!

Whilst looking through yesterdays challenge blogs I saw that Donna from Craftheadcase had once again created a bendy card which is just fabulous and so I thought I would have a go!!!

Today I thought I would finish my card as last night we had our darling Granddaughter Summer and boy I did wonder why I had bothered with the something different!! Maybe its because I feel down today but here goes anyway thought I would give you all a laugh!!

This was going to my my Mothers Day card but I think it will just be a template! lol

My main Tilda is from the Candy I won on Debbie Dolphins blog at Christmas, mini cherub and this wonderful ribbon wreath stamp all coloured with pro markers but as you can see the main image I have paper pieced.

The papers are from Magnolia the colours where a bit bright so I have distressed them with vintage paper and I have added bazzil to them! The butterfly border is one of Tim Holt's.

The beautiful Tag and sentiment are from Magnolia and added so lace from my stash.

A picture of the center of the card whilst laid flat!

The challenges I am entering are:
Craft Yours Days Away - Paper Piecing
Allsorts - Anything Goes

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Boy I have more new followers thank you all so much! Thanks again for all your lovely comments each one is so special and so encouraging!

Love & Hugs Chanelle xx

Don't be so hard on yourself this is a really sweet card and it's nice to see something a little different.

It's good to try new things - sometimes we like what we do, sometimes we don't, but it's better to try at least that way we know what styles of card work best for us and everyone is different. x
