Simply Create challenge


I have attempted a circle card today, well yesterday actualy but I finished it today lol. I think I have only ever made one circle card before and it was really pants so probably wasn't the best kind of card for me to attempt for a challenge but never mind.
I wanted to join in with the challenge at Simply Create and I decided I would do something different for a change.
The challenge is to use the colours from the inspiration board below and use a flower and a buttom somewhere on your creation.

Isn't it gorgeous? I think I will make another card using this inspiration board :)

I used one of the older Sugar Nellie stamps and coloured her with Promarkers, then distressed the edges of the card she is stamped on with my scissors and went round the edges with stickles, although you can't see the stickles here.
The papers are by Pink Petticoat which I also distressed the edges of  has the light pink, blue and green in it, so I just had to find some darker pink embelishments so I had all the colours from the board.
The flourish is from a pack by Scrappy Car called Bling Board. This was one of my bargain  buys from Hobbycraft in the January sales, reduced to just 29p per pack, and I got the last pack :) I bought this having no idea what I would do with them but couldn't resist a bargain lol, so I'm glad they came in useful for something.
The larger flowers are from and the smaller ones are Papermaina..... the small ones look a lot darker in the photos but irl they are more like the colour in the inspiration board.
The tulle is from Hobbycraft and I forgot about the button part of  the challenge and added a little rose on the tulle bow with  the pearl sprays, then remembered I had to use a button, so changed the flower for a button and threaded some dark pink ribbon through it. Oh and I added some little half pearls from my stash as well.

I haven't decorated the inside yet, but will do that tonight once the kids are all in bed, and I might even get another card made :)

That's it from me for now, hopefully I will be back tomorrow with a card that I have made tonight.... that's if the kids go to bed without a carry on!!

Thanaks for stopping by
