Some days I struggle to think of a title for my blog entries, must try and be more creative with this! It's been a really sunny and warm weekend again and I've been doing a bit of crafting. We are in the middle of decorating our spare room at the moment and I've been looking at lots of paint swatches in sunny yellows, so thought I would make a card to match! I've used the SU Simply Said flowers and a sentiment from the SU Circle Of Friendship set. The colours are so saffron, real red and whisper white. The border punch is fiskars and the striped ribbon is from the SU mini catalogue.
I 've also made a card and gift bag. The papers are from Stampin' Up's! summer picnic DSP with the colours so saffron, real red, basic grey and very vanilla. The flowers have been made using the SU scallop circle punch along with some real red ribbon and some SU jumbo eyelets (these are so fab to use!) Bye for now and thanks so much for looking!
