Pretty Things

Having Monday off has completely thrown me, I have no idea what day it is!  Also Steve came home last night, which was a nice surprise but threw me as I though he wasn't home until Friday!  He's gone off to Bristol this morning, so I'm home alone tonight, which means I get to play with paper and glue.  What a lovely time I've had.
This card was inspired by challenges at:
The Secret Crafter - recipe challenge - 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image
MelJen's Designs - Flower's and Blooms

I had great fun with this card playing with my new Silkies.  There's beautiful little paints with lots of cool properties.  They've got mica powders in so dry with a pearlised finish.  The flowers and birds were done with just dabbing the silkies over a template - very pretty.
This card was inspired by challenges at:
2 sketches for you - sketch challenge, I turned it on it's side

I love the colours on this card.  The yellow and grey colour scheme has been all over magazines lately and although I'm a little late to the table, I've started to get it!  It's so delicate.  In real life the yellow is more buttery - I'm so rubbish at this photography lark.  I really am a point and click girl.
This card was inspired by challenges at:
Quixotic Challenges - let your garden grow - use DIY flowers on your card/project
ABC Challenge - U is for Unused stash (I could have made hundreds of cards for this!)
The Pink Elephant - Yellow, Designer Paper and Buttons

I hope you've had a good Wednesday - I think it's Wednesday!!
