Art Deco card

A couple of years ago I bought the lovely Hunkydory Deco Delights mega kit and only did a couple of cards with it. Yup! Too much stash. I've got lots of birthdays during the months of July and August and I've put this mega kit to good use.

It's a new challenge at INTAAS this week and our challenge is Dies.

The centre image is from the Hunkydory but I've used the Spellbinders dies Astoria Labels and Decorative elements to make it stand out . the feathers came with the kit too.

Please join us at International Art and Soul with your beautiful die cut creations.

What a scorcher!

What fantastic weather we are having, just a little cooler today, windows open wide and the breeze is blowing the cobwebs away. My dogs are loving the warmth unless it gets just too much for them but there are a few cool places for them to sleep.  Miss Tuppence is a bit of a sun worshipper and we have to turn her over as she will just lays there cooking! Alfie being white is sensible and stays indoors.


The challenge this week at International Art and Soul is is to create anything you like 'With Elements of Nature'.  This can be just about anything thats living or breathing or at the close of day when autumn comes, deep winter etc. Loads to choose from!

I found this sentiment on Pinterest but could not find a source to acknowledge the creator, such beautiful words.  The butterflies were from an old Kanban kit that I've had for ever and I thought I could use them on my card.  The banner was created with Spellbinders Baby Bunting and the edge of the card was embossed with a Sue Wilson Noble Pierced Square. Very simple but I'll save for just that right time.

Please pop over and see the fabulous cards my teamies have made for the challenge here.
