Simply Flower-less...

Hi Sugar addicts ;o), I'm back from my hols and ready to bring you some Sunday inspiration! I had a lovely time in England, we did loads in the five days we were there and even went to see Princess Kate's wedding dress in Buckingham Palace, it was amazing :D!

Anyway, for your inspiration today I have made a flower-less card...I know right, I didn't think that was possible either ;o), but somehow or other flowers just didn't suit. So after a lot of trying I left them off, being somewhat gobsmacked at my own decision!

I got the design for this card from DoCrafts Creativity magazine, I love some of the ideas in there and there's always a free gift which, being a Dutch person, I really appreciate of course :-p.

You can't see the sentiment because, well, I took the picture wrong, but it says "Girly You Rock", which I thought was very appropriate ;o)

Card Ingredients:

Simply Sassy "
Lost in Music"; sentiment by Papertrey Ink
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock white; My Mind's Eye design paper Lime Twist: Life of the Party
Embellishments: Zva Creative pearl swirls; Kars adhesive pearls; string; charm
Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle large
E00, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips)
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)
BG15, BG13, BG11 (turquoise bits)

Right, that's it from me for this week, hope I've inspired you and that you have some lovely crafty time set aside for today :D!

  4. Stunning card and such pretty colour too, Sheila:)X

  5. Wow, this is gorgeous! Beautifully colored and I love your papers too.

  6. Yourmatching of the aqua colouring to the papers is superb & I love the effect of the circular elements. the touch of deep brown is utterly effective & your use of pearls just lovely - especially the way the swirls pick up the shape of your clef charm. Definitely no need for flowers.
    Just a joy to behold.
