Beads and Baubles...


Do you sometimes find that you start working on a card with a fully developed idea in your head, only to find that when you put it together it makes itself into something completely different? This is what happened with this card for me. This week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is a photo titled Beads & Baubles, so in my head was a confection of blingy bits and pieces. But when I was making the card, it was more the colours and shapes within the photo that inspired me, rather than the pearls and jewels.

This is what I ended up with:
This is the trigger:

The card is SU! Crumb Cake with an Early Espresso Matte. The floral background paper is Pink Paislee Diamonds from the Soiree Collection. The image is a digi from Paper Pretties, called Crocuses. The ink is Early Espresso. I coloured the flowers with Inktense pencils.  The sentiment is from PTI Botanical Silhouettes.

Now I need to get back to the cards I HAVE to make today - my little girl is off to a birthday party tomorrow, and she needs a card to go with the present...the order is for a unicorn card... don't you love it when the four-year-old has faith in your ability to whip ANYTHING up? LOL.
